Bubble Schmeisis is going to Edinburgh

3rd to 28th August Summerhall. Click for tickets. 

Bubbemeises is Yiddish, it translates as a grandmother's story, a tall story, an old wives' tale.

 

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 and ritual Nick and his Klezmer musicians 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?


Bubble Schmeisis is full of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting schmeised (washed) by old men.
