Description: Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humourously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert.
Playwright: Hannah Moscovitch, Director: Christian Barry
Songs by: Ben Caplan & Christian Barry
This Klezmer music-theatre hybrid starring genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908. It’s about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It’s about refugees who get out before it’s too late, and those who get out after it’s too late. And it’s about looking into the eyes of God.
