Bubbemeises is Yiddish, it translates as a grandmother’s story, a tall story, an old wives' tale.
Following his sell out run in Detroit, writer and street performer Nick Cassenbaum invites you into the warmth of the Canning Town Schvitz, East London’s last authentic bath house. Amongst the steam, ritual and live Klezmer, Nick will take you on a journey to find the place he belongs. Schlaping through summer camps, barber shops and Spurs games … will he find what he was looking for?
‘A gregarious performer (with) an accessible, generous, disarming production.’STAGE
Bubble Schmeisis is full of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting schmeised (washed) by old men.
'Effortlessly charming and infectiously funny, Bubble Schemisis is everything you’d want from a show.’
'A disarmingly informal raconteur, talking to the audience as if we're old friends.’
