★★★★ 'A truly magical play about space, bravery and the little dog that could.' The Upcoming

Laika, the space dog: the first living creature to orbit earth.


That was in 1957. Today it’s 2057, and Sami lives with his mum. She’s an astronaut and she understands that there could be a better future out in space. But Sami’s life is down here. So now they must face the prospect of letting go, saying goodbye and – just like Laika – head off into the unknown. A moving sci-fi adventure, inventively and beautifully told using puppetry, movement and music.
