Michael K Premieres in Edinburgh
We’re delighted to announce that our new show, Michael K, will premiere at the world’s biggest book festival, Edinburgh International Book Festival, on Wednesday May 15th.
The show, which brings J.M. Coietzee’s 1983 Man Booker Prize-winning novel Life & Times of Michael K to life, is commissioned by Man Booker Prize as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations.
In a country riven by war, Michael K sets out from his home in search of safety. As he walks through 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 novel with huge contemporary significance. An immersive experience of a classic novel that explores our relationship with nature, and the search for inner harmony.
Tickets are available here.
