Nick worked with director Danny Braverman to devise and write this touching and comedic show in 2015. He has since performed Bubble Schmeisis to sold out audiences in London at the Camden People's Theatre, JW3 and Rich Mix. The show has been programmed at SUMMERHALL in Edinburgh as part of the Fringe Festival so Nick will now be journeying up there this summer! We are now asking you to help get Nick and his klezmer musicians north of the border...
The word Bubbemeises is a Yiddish term meaning 'a grandmother’s story', 'an old wives’ tale'. Writer and street performer Nick Cassenbaum along with his Klezmer musicians invite you into the warmth of the Canning Town Schvitz, East London’s last remaining authentic bathhouse. Amongst the steam and ritual Nick will take you on a journey of discovery to find the place where he belongs. Schlapping through summer camps, barber shops and Spurs games, will he find what he is looking for? Bubble Schmeisis is full of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting schmeised (washed) by old men.
It is important for the development of the show that it journeys out of London and gets in front of new audiences... Summerhall is a highly respected venue and will offer a perfect space in which to tell this story. Following the Fringe, Nick plans to take Bubble Schmeisis all over the world… and who doesn’t want that?
WHAT WILL THE MONEY BE SPENT ON?
If you've read this far, thank you! The money will go towards the props (as mentioned), the transport of the set, the train tickets for the brilliant musicians and flyers to promote the show whilst up in Edinburgh.
WHAT WILL YOU GET IN RETURN?
Nick would love you to join his Schmeissing team by sticking your hand in your pocket and donating. You can sponsor a variety of items used in the show and also receive a reward. Whatever amount you sponsor we will be sure to put your name ON the object of your choosing and you may even be mentioned as part of the show..how schmeisstastic is that?! We will be in touch prior to Edinburgh to ask which item you would like to be the offical sponsor of.

Come on...don’t be a schmeiss ponce.
