Prodigal Comedy/Satire; Drama Australasian View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

A contemporary retelling of the well known parable, PRODIGAL is the story of Luke Flannery and his typically Australian family.  On his eighteenth birthday, Luke runs away to Sydney, rather than work in the family business.  When he comes out to his parents, their rejection causes him to plunge recklessly into the city's nightlife.  He returns home, broken, to a family who struggle to reconcile the son who left with the one who has returned.  Featuring a contemporary score, PRODIGAL is a starkly humorous and poignant look at the challenges of growing up.
