Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story 🎻
March 11 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
2b Theatre. Featuring Ben Caplan.
Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humourously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert. This Klezmer-folk 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.
Old Stock has toured to 32 cities around the globe, and has been performed over 250 times, receiving many awards and accolades along the way including a Herald Angel Award, Edinburgh Fringe First, seven Theatre Nova Scotia Merritt Awards, six Drama Desk nominations, and a New York Times Critics pick.
