When is Samuel coming?
| from 5 years old |
Two men wait by a swing for Samuel's arrival to celebrate a party. To overcome boredom, they invent games, they imagine. Mr. Professor appears, gives them a lesson and leaves. In the end, on the swing, they try to escape.
This play is a permanent party waiting for the celebration of another party, the one promised by Samuel.
The girl and the boy live with infinite astonishment a present that escapes them while they play at life. This astonishment drives them to discover through play, which accompanies them in their first years of life: they play to know, to learn, to relate, to grow. This is what happens in When Samuel Comes?
