Sex, religion, tragedy and triumph...
This darkly funny musical folk tale erupts from a shipping container, lifts you by the collar and takes you on a whirlwind exploration of what love actually means across the centuries.
Let the klezmer music take you on the journey of Chaim and Chaya as they flee Romania and arrive as 'outsiders' to Canada in 1908.
Narrated by the anarchic Wanderer (Ben Caplan), Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is an 80-minute shape-shifting, genre-bending, gig-meets-live-theatre experience that is as timeless as the tale itself.
There will be a 20 minute post-show talk after the evening show on Friday 20th September and after the matinee show on Thursday 26th September.
