Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story

A 2b theatre company production

Please note: The June 2020 remount performances have been cancelled.

Halifax, 1908: two Romanian Jews stand in line at Pier 21 in Halifax, would-be immigrants to an unknown country. Chaim is alone – his family didn’t make it out; Chaya carries her own secret losses. 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 Klezmer rock concert/theatre hybrid stars genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan and is inspired by the real-life story of playwright Hannah Moscovitch’s great-grandparents.

Playwright Hannah Moscovitch, Directed by Christian Barry with Songs by Ben Caplan & Christian Barry*

*Except for Traveler’s Curse by Geoff Berner & The Happy People by Danny Rubenstein

**Additional Music Composed by Graham Scott

Please Note: There is no late admission for the performance of Old Stock.
