Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humourously dark folk tale woven together with a high energy concert. This musical hybrid starring Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908. It’s about how to love and find our shared humanity after facing the horrors of war. Old Stock has thrilled audiences all over North America, Australia and Europe, WJT is so excited to bring it to Winnipeg!
