A true story of love, art, history and fish balls, Wot? No Fish!! comes to the Battersea Arts Centre following an acclaimed run at 2013’s Edinburgh Festival.

The production tells the true story of a Jewish family living in 20th century London. From falling in love to quarrels about fish balls, audiences are taken on a funny and moving journey against the backdrop of a changing city.

The story is inspired by shoemaker Ab Solomons, who in 1926 drew on the wage packet he gave to his new wife Celie. Throughout their marriage and into the 80s Ab drew or painted on his wage packet every week for her.

Years later Danny Braverman discovered his great uncle’s 2,000 wage packets, which depicted with remarkable honesty the ups and downs of their life together. This show brings their story to life.
