Brisbane Festival and QUT present

A Prudent Man


19 - 23 Sept | Theatre Republic - La Boite Studio


Lab Kelpie (AUS)

"★★★★★ - Profound and gripping viewing for all." Theatre People

A conservative politician, a leader, a man in a snappy suit, an athlete in a bad tracksuit: meet an amalgamation of the right-wing politician who haunts us all.

What makes the Trumps, the Abbotts and the Hansons of this world tick? What would happen if their world started to shift ever so slightly?

Written and directed by award-winning playwright Katy Warner and performed by Lyall Brooks, this darkly comedic tour de force takes an unapologetic look at memory, ego, power and what it means to be right… in more ways than one.

This production contains adult themes, sexual references, and mild coarse language.

Writer/Director: Katy Warner
