About this event

Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story by 2b theatre company (NS) is a humorously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert.

Sales of this $45 Early Bird General Admission ends on Saturday, October15, 2022.

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 a humorously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war.

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.

★★★★★ “a thing of raw and unmissable beauty” - Herald Scotland

Playwright: Hannah Moscovitch

Director: Christian Barry

Songs by: Ben Caplan & Christian Barry
