In Josef, verdens første helt?* (Joseph, the first hero in the world?) Samovarteateret AKA The Samovar Theatre AKA Samovar brought the audience back in time; when the Romans ruled, angels visited the Earth and the miracles lined up. "Let you be entertained by camels, fake beards, shepherds and myrrh!” the company announced.

As an alternative to the traditional pre-Christmas party, Samovarteateret offered an evening with food, drinks and entertainment. All done backstage in the cultural centre Malmklang. Samovar offered figs, wine and song with more than a touch of Joseph.
