Wot? No Fish!!

“A show about love…Made with love.” (The Guardian).

In 1926, the British, Jewish shoemaker Ab Solomon made a drawing on the back of his paycheck, which he then gave to his wife Celie. Afterwards, this ritual continued week after week for years.

Ab’s many unfiltered, loving drawings of Celie and their common everyday life forms an insightful, warm and honest story about their long life together.

Today, many years later, the couple’s nephew Danny Braverman performs this critically acclaimed performance, which tells the whimsical story of the deceased uncle’s drawings.

The theatre performance is a warm, funny and unique tale of love, art, history and fish balls.

STAND ALONE Festival 21

With STAND ALONE Festival we present Danish and international solo performances – gripping stories performed by a single actor on stage.

Musicians and technicians make significant contributions in several of the performances, but the actor must otherwise stand alone on stage.

You can use both the subscription discount and your season pass when you book tickets for performances that are part of the festival.


This is a show about love that has been made with love … Ab and Celie are long gone, but through Ab’s drawings and Braverman’s generous performance, they live on.

A brilliantly and exquisitely created show. Accurately portrays the intricacies of relationships, family, community, friendships, love and history. Gentle, intelligent and most of all entertaining.
