Life & Times of Michael K by J M Coetzee
Wed 15 Aug 20:30 - 21:30
Baillie Gifford Main Theatre
Playing with Books
In partnership with the Man Booker Prize and Story Machine Productions we present a live show based upon Life & Times of Michael K by J M Coetzee, winner of the Man Booker Prize in 1983. In a country riven by war, Michael K sets out from his home in search of safety. As he walks this fallen land in search of peace, he asks what it means to live in harmony with the land and the times we find ourselves in. Can we live a life of dignity when lies, division and repression are all around us? Featuring film, performance and live reading, this is a powerful and immediate staging of a classic novel by one of the finest writers of our age.
Part of our Playing with Books series of events.
Production made possible with the support of the Booker Prize Foundation
