KIM’S CONVENIENCE by Ins Choi
directed by Rebecca Wear
“BEAUTIFULLY RECOUNTS THE ENDURING CONCERNS OF CULTURES, GENERATIONS, AND CHANGE” -Broadway World
Mr. Kim, a Korean immigrant, dispenses fatherly wisdom, history lessons and potato chips from behind his Toronto convenience store counter in an up-and-coming neighborhood. When he receives an unexpected offer for his property, he has a difficult decision to make: take the money and give in to developers or convince his daughter to follow in his footsteps. Amidst these challenges, Mr. Kim navigates the needs of his customers and a strong-willed family.
And no matter what, humor and heart finds their way onto every aisle in this award-winning play that is now a hit series on Netflix.
