A Prudent Man

The Theatre Royal presents a Lab Kelpie production A conservative politician, a leader, a man in a snappy suit, an athlete in a bad tracksuit – meet A Prudent Man.

There’s water and a glass on the table, but that’s all. Perhaps this is an investigation. What has he done wrong? 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? *Performed at the Theatre Royal Backspace
