  3. Life & Times of Michael K


The Booker Prize-winning Life & Times of Michael K, written by J.M Coetzee, is a stunning novel depicting the arduous personal struggles that accompanies from intense political conflict. South Africa’s Baxter Theater and Handspring Puppet Company’s inventive, poignant adaptation of this seminal book has won plaudits across Europe in New York, and now it’s coming to Boston

The hauntingly beautiful story follows Michael K, a simple man who embarks on a journey through South Africa, ravaged by civil war, to return his mother to die on the farm where she was born. He finds strength in his own humanity, his profound connection to the earth, and his unique path, which, as it unfolds, reveals to him his reason for living.
