Danny Braverman shares a packet of memories
of Jewish life in East London – with audiences at BAC
In 1926, shoemaker Ab Solomons drew a doodle on the wage-packet he gave to his wife Celie. Over the next 55 years, Ab drew a wage-packet cartoon for Celie every week. Now this extraordinary chronicle of East London Jewish life is brought to life by Ab's great-nephew, storyteller Danny Braverman, in a show he calls Wot? No Fish!! which he has toured to theatres, schools, community venues and festivals, including the 2013 Edinburgh Festival where it garnered four and five star reviews.
Hear Danny discuss the cartoons with Judi Herman
