Join us for a night of food, fun and live theatre in support of Educational programs and New Play Development at Tarragon. The evening includes a performance of Old Stock: A Refugee Love story, written by Hannah Moscovitch, with songs by Ben Caplan & Christian Barry.
Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story
Halifax, 1908: two Romanian Jews stand in line at Pier 21 in Halifax, would-be immigrants to an unknown country. Chaim’s entire family was murdered in a pogrom; Chaya lost her husband to fever and starvation. But the New World is giving them a second chance, and they embrace it to the fullest. Narrated by The Wanderer — part showman, part rabbi — this genre-bending rock concert/theatre hybrid stars Klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan and is inspired by the real-life story of Moscovitch’s great-grandparents.
