“I have been labeled as a wanderer
this is not the case
I have a home
it’s just that it’s an inconvenient place right now”
Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humorously dark folk tale woven together with a high- energy concert. This Klezmer music/theatre hybrid, starring genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan, is inspired by the true story of two 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 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.
