A Prudent Man 2016 single work drama

'A darkly comic mixture of the Howards, the Abbotts, the Camerons and the Thatchers of the world, A Prudent Man looks at 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?'
