Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story


Herald Angel Award & Scotsman Fringe First Award-winner Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story by Canadian 2b theatre company is a humorously 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 immigrating 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 hope.
