NAC English Theatre Presentation

A 2b theatre company (Halifax, NS) Production

Part high-energy musical and part darkly funny folktale, Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story stars genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan, one of Canada’s most riveting and compelling performers. Written by Ottawa’s own Hannah Moscovitch, this klezmer music-theatre hybrid is inspired by the true story of two Jewish Romanian refugees who immigrated to Canada in 1908.

Shifting seamlessly between heartbreak and joy, Old Stock is about losing everything and finding the courage to make a new start.

Performance is approximately 85 minutes with no intermission.

  • Mature themes
  • Strong language
