A humorously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert.

This Klezmer-folk music-theatre hybrid starring genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees immigrating to Canada in 1908.

It’s 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.

The show inspired by the real life story of Moscovitch’s great-grandparents, immigrating to Canada in the early twentieth century, viewed through the historical lens of Jewish immigrants a hundred years ago. It’s a love story, albeit one with its fair share of loss.

Written by acclaimed Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch and winner of the Herald Angel Award and Scotsman Fringe First, Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story thrilled audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017 and is touring the UK following a hugely successful run in New York, Edmonton in Canada and Mayfest in Bristol.
