Humourously dark story-theatre with a high-energy concert, Old Stock debuted in Halifax and has become an international sensation, also enjoying a wildly popular seven-week run Off-Broadway. The play tells the true story of Hannah Moscovitch’s great-grandparents, who landed on Pier 2 as Jewish Romanian immigrants to start a new life. Dark and hilarious, Old Stock is a genre-bending folk tale, woven together in a concert of brash, rollicking, joyful Klezmer Folk music.
“A thing of raw and unmissable beauty” (Herald Scotland), this Klezmer-folk music-theatre hybrid stars musical sensation Ben Caplan.
Audience Considerations: Mature subject matter, sexuality and coarse language. Suggested for ages 14+.
