About Old Stock
A WILDLY POPULAR, GENRE-BENDING SPECTACLE!
Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humorously dark folk tale woven together with a high-energy concert. Wild, witty, and wonderfully inventive, this fusion of concert and drama tells the true tale of two Jewish refugees from Romania. They meet in 1908, while awaiting medical inspection at Halifax’s Pier 21 immigration centre; the story moves forward to their lives as a couple in Montreal and backward to the horrors of the Continent. Old Stock’s rousing thrilling music blends Yiddish Klezmer with modern folk stylings, creating a wistful and energetic tone.
Starring the East Coast sensation Ben Caplan, this musical hybrid is about how to love and find our shared humanity after facing the horrors of war.
“Richly humorous, wildly entertaining and deeply moving.” -The Globe and Mail
“Darkly funny and moving…it is hard to imagine a more apt time for a production with so clear a moral centre.”-The New Yorker
