Old Stock

A Refugee Love Story

This theatrical-musical hybrid, inspired by the real-life story of two Romanian Jews, examines the refugee immigration experience of a century ago. ECMA-winning musician Ben Caplan, Dora award-winning playwright Hannah Moscovitch and 2b theatre company artistic co-director Christian Barry join forces to create a humorously dark folktale combined with a high energy concert.
