Based on the story “Samson’s Voyage” by Anette Mierswa.
Samson is Anette’s best friend –her four-legged companion who’s always been by her side. As Samson reaches arespectable age, he falls very ill, and Anette decides to take her trusted pupon an unforgettable final voyage.
Despite objections from Anette’s mom,the two run away from home to go see her grandfather who lives somewhere inLatgale. Although grandpa is a bit wacky (as scientists often are), Anettebelieves he’s the only one who could understand her and help Samson – even ifthe fountain of youth hasn’t been discovered yet.
The play touches upon importanttopics that are often left undiscussed and unfathomed – family ties,friendship, loss. But all these things need to be talked about, and ourprotagonists will attempt to do so through a journey filled with adventure,mischief, and science experiments.
In 2017, German author Annette Mierswa’s story “Samson’s Voyage” received theBaltic Sea Region Jānis Baltvilks Prize in Children's Literature and Book Art.
