OLD STOCK: A REFUGEE LOVE STORY

Created by Hannah Moscovitch, Ben Caplan, and Christian Barry
Directed by Christian Barry
With Ben Caplan, Mary Fay Coady, Jamie Kronick, Graham Scott, and Chris Weatherstone
Inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908, Old Stock is a humorously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert.

This genre-bending music-theater hybrid starring Klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan is 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.
