About the play: This Klezmer-folk music-theatre hybrid starring genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908. It’s a humourously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war.
★★★★★ “a thing of raw and unmissable beauty” – Herald Scotland
