A fantasy play based on children’s story „Sirli, Siim and the Secrets“

Once upon a time there was a boy who dreamed of becoming a pirate. But when he grew up he forgot all about it and got a job in a shopping centre. After some years rumours started spreading about how it is impossible to sail on the sea, as there is a constant storm and every now and then people are attacked by a strange pirate ship.

Many years went by before this ship wrecked in a storm. Even more years passed before the waters settled again. This was all a result of a little boy’s neglected childhood dream. If you leave your dream, it can vanish or become evil. And that is very dangerous! The world is a complicated system. Sometimes it rains so heavily and the sun does not want to appear. Then it is clear that the sun is sad. Also the sun can be someone’s dream. And someone has forgotten about it. It can be. Everything is possible. Isn’t it?
