Arts Club Theatre Company On Tour presents Kim’s Convenience

Various locations13 Feb '20 to 28 Mar '20 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Kim’s Convenience, Ins Choi’s hilarious and touching debut play set in a family-run corner store, will be touring throughout the Lower Mainland and B.C. from February 13 to March 28, 2020.

    Mr. Kim (James Yi), or Appa, a Korean shopkeeper in Toronto’s Regent Park area, grapples with both a changing neighbourhood landscape and the chasm between him and his second-generation Canadian offspring. This journey of a fractured but loving family confronting the future and forgiving the past is a Canadian classic in the making.

    Kim’s Convenience was originally produced as part of the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival, where it won the New Play Contest and the Patron’s Pick Award. It went on to an enormously successful run in 2012 at Soulpepper, receiving the Toronto Theatre Critics’ Award for Best New Canadian Play and spawning a nine-city national tour. The play has since been published by House of Anansi Press and has been adapted into an award-winning television series for CBC and, now, Netflix.

    Ins Choi is a Korean-Canadian actor, playwright, and director known for his plays Kim's Convenience and Subway Stations of the Cross. Born in South Korea, Choi grew up in Scarborough, Ontario, and now resides in Toronto with his family. A graduate of York University’s Theatre Program, Choi has performed with Fu-GEN, Canadian Stage, the Stratford Festival, and Soulpepper.
