OLD STOCK: A REFUGEE LOVE STORY

by Hannah Moscovitch with songs by Ben Caplan & Christian Barry, directed by Christian Barry

Friday May 24, 2019 at 8:00pm  |  At the Tarragon Theatre, 30 Bridgman Avenue

Followed by a private Q&A and post-show party

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. This humourously dark folk tale narrated by The Wanderer — part showman, part rabbi — is a genre-bending rock/klezmer concert/theatre hybrid starring Klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan and is inspired by the real-life story of Moscovitch’s great-grandparents.  It’s about how one can love after being broken by the horrors of war.
