On Thursday, May 11th, 8pm, at The Waiting Room (6040 Almon St.), the AJC invites you to join the Jewish community for a special night of Jewish theatre in Halifax featuring the 2b theatre company‘s production of:
“Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story”
written by Hannah Moscovitch, Ben Caplan, and Christian Barry & directed by Christian Barry
About the Production
2b theatre company, a local Halifax company, joins forces with 2 young Jewish adults living in Halifax: klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan and Dora Award-winning local playwright Hannah Moscovitch to tell a Canadian Jewish refugee story that hits close to home.
This genre-bending music-theatre hybrid is inspired by the real-life story of Moscovitch’s great-grandparents, both Romanian Jews, immigrating to Canada in the early twentieth century. Ben Caplan plays the mysterious emcee in this examination of the refugee experience, viewed through the historical lens of Jewish immigrants a hundred years ago. And it’s also a love story. The show will take the form of a humourously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert.
For this night only of the show’s run, there will be a talk-back after the production featuring the show’s producers and a local Jewish newcomer.
Regularly priced tickets are $38.08 but the AJC has arranged a 20% group ticket discount on top of these prices bringing the price down to $30.76 per ticket for the night of May 11th. This discount is available with use of the promo code “AJC”.
