“My Father's Coat” is the realization of Michael's decade-long ambition to make the incredible story, that is South African history, more accessible and in a way where meaning and entertainment meet.

His idea was to condense the epic narrative of South Africa into a bite-size story which is both compelling and accurate. This is a story, told by climbing into the boots of five prominent and directly interlinked protagonists spanning 200 turbulent years: Mzilikazi, Kruger, Rhodes, Smuts and Mandela.

With the introduction of each subsequent character, new facts are carefully leaked into the narrative, undermining previous biases and providing a new depth of understanding; until a balanced view gradually emerges.
