Sex, religion, tragedy and triumph… Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a darkly funny musical folk tale that erupts from a shipping container, lifts you by the collar & takes you on a journey of what love actually means across the centuries. https://t.co/dNkh7W2nRr 18 – 28 Sept pic.twitter.com/K1jBTZv0iy

Marking the UN’s World Refugee Day (Thursday 20th June), writer Hannah Moscovitch told Encore Radio:
“The play gained a dark relevance over the time that we’ve worked on it. With the Syrian conflict continuing to decimate a nation, and Trump trying to turn his racism into policy, the plight of refugees is far from a story of the past.”
Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story will open at the Wilton’s Music Hall on the 18th September and play until the 28th September.
