In 1926 shoemaker Ab Solomons drew a doodle on the wage-packet he gave to his wife Celie.  Throughout their marriage, right up until 1982, Ab developed his art, drawing a wage-packet  cartoon every week for Celie. These cartoons chronicle Ab and Celie’s family life, through ups and downs, with great wit and warmth and with a blistering honesty.

Danny Braverman’s solo show tells the funny and moving story of how he discovered the lost art of his Great-uncle Ab. Wot? No Fish!! is an extraordinary story about love, art, history …and catering.

Ab and Celie went on a journey along a road that went uphill both ways – but it was a journey they took together.
