Lab Kelpie is a theatre company dedicated to the production of new work by Australian playwrights.

A conservative politician, a leader, a man in a snappy suit, an athlete in a bad tracksuit - meet A Prudent Man.

Written and directed by Katy Warner and performed by Lyall Brooks, A Prudent Man takes an unapologetic look at a man in control of everything on the edge. A darkly comic mixture of the Howards, the Abbotts, the Camerons and the Thatchers of the world, A Prudent Man explores what it means to be a decent human being, and what it means to be right - in more ways than one.

What makes the Cory Bernardis and Pauline Hansons of this world tick? What would happen if their world started to shift ever so slightly?

This is not a show about one politician or political event, this is a speculative piece inspired by real life events and people.

'Theatre at the very top of its game; complex, enlightening and thoroughly accomplished.'
