Nick Cassenbaum’s Bubble Schmeisis returns for its second run at CPT after 3 sell out performances Oct 2015. 

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 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.

This is the Edinburgh preview of the show.

Written and performed by Nick Cassenbaum
Directed by Danny Braverman
Designed by Bethany Wells
Musicians Josh Middleton and Daniel Gouly

Catch Bubble Schmeisis in a double bill with May-We-Go-Round (7-8 June) or Late Night Love (9-11 June). Two shows for just £16!
