Additional Info

Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humorously dark folk tale woven together with a high energy concert. This music-theatre hybrid starring international Klezmer sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of Jewish Romanian refugees coming 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.
