Soho Young Theatre Makers Programme
Walthamstow School for Girls
With Slap Haddock we are currently running the Soho Young Theatre Makers Programme in Walthamstow. It is a 10 week scheme where the participants will be guided to make a piece of theatre in Slap Haddock's style.
There was a time every London Borough had its own public bath house. Many are gone, some are still around. People don’t know they exist. The audience will be invited into the forgotten world of an East London Baths. They will be taught the age old techniques of Schmiesing and brought into a heavy set Jewish world of stories, jokes and kvetches.
