Wot? No Fish!! (Bread and Circuses)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

Forget ‘Come Dine with Me’; Danny Braverman would unquestionably make the best dinner host there is. Offering delicious fish balls to his audience on arrival, before launching into captivating and personal tales, told with simple sincerity and complete ease, ‘Wot? No Fish!!’ feels as casual and warming as an after-dinner chat with a friend. Rummaging through an enchanting box cluttered with family treasures, Danny shares the cheeky and cheering doodles of an old great-uncle, each of which helps to build up a beautiful story about love, Jewish family values and how lives intertwine. This is a production that, as Jewish tradition dictates, ensures no one goes away hungry, but leaves utterly stuffed on rich, life-affirming stories.

Summerhall, until 25 Aug (not 6, 13, 20), 3.00pm.
