Old Stock: a Refugee Love Story
April 16 – May 26
Written by Hannah Moscovitch With songs by Ben Caplan & Christian Barry Toronto premiere
A humourously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert. This genre-bending music-theatre hybrid starring Klezmer folk sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the real life story of Moscovitch’s Romanian-Jewish great-grandparents who immigrated to Canada in 1908. It’s about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It’s about looking into the eyes of God.
