A 2b theatre company production
Playwright(s): Hannah Moscovitch
Composer(s): Ben Caplan
Halifax, 1908: two Romanian Jews stand in line at Pier 21 in Halifax, would-be immigrants to an unknown country. Chaim’s entire family was murdered in a pogrom; Chaya lost her husband to fever and starvation. But the New World is giving them a second chance, and they embrace it to the fullest. This genre-bending rock concert/theatre hybrid stars Klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan and is inspired by the real-life story of Moscovitch’s great-grandparents.
★★★★★ Emotionally engaging, visually stunning and at 80 minutes leaves us still wanting more.
