Danny Braverman discovered the lost art of his Great Uncle Ab on 3,000 wage packets. Now the story is brought to life on stage in this captivating performance.

About the Show

Witness a master storyteller retell the most wonderful true story of his Great Uncle Ab and Great Aunt Celie bringing up their family in 20th Century London. For nearly fifty years, a shoemaker drew a doodle on his wage packet and gave it to his wife every week. These illustrations tell, with great wit, warmth and blistering honesty, the ups and downs of Ab and Celie's long life together. From falling in love to quarrels about fish balls, this captivating performance takes the audience on an emotional journey against the backdrop of a changing city.
