About: Bubble Schmeisis

Bubbemeises is Yiddish. It translates as a grandmotherís story, a tall story, an old wivesí tale.

Writer and performer Nick Cassenbaum and his klezmer musicians invite you into the warmth of the Canning Town Schvitz, East Londonís last authentic bath house. Amongst the steam and ritual Nick will take you on a journey to find the place he belongs. Schlepping through summer camps, barber shops and Spurs games, will Nick 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.


"Cassenbaum is a gregarious performer and this is an accessible, generous, disarming production." ★★★★ The Stage

"Cassenbaum is a disarmingly informal raconteur, talking to the audience as if we're old friends... Bubble Schmeisis offers a friendly, gently provocative perspective on Jewish experience." ★★★★ The List

"Itís by far the funniest thing I have seen in Edinburgh so far, and yet as youíre howling away at another anecdote Bubble Schmeisis is actually saying more about identity and different humans in shared city spaces than many shows." Exeunt

"Nick Cassenbaum is a hugely-likeable performer. His is a very engaging and appealing style: amiable and intimate" ★★★★ The Reviews Hub

"...a riotous hour" ★★★★★ Fringe Guru

"Charming, thought provoking and magnetic, Nick Cassenbaum has crafted a show with a point and not one to be missed" ★★★★★ The Young Perspective

"This is a warm, informative, lovely show, and you would do well to spend an hour at the baths!" ★★★★ British Theatre
