Kim's Convenience


A Soulpepper Production
KIM'S CONVENIENCE
By INS CHOI

Directed by WEYNI MENGESHA
Featuring INS CHOI, PAUL SUN-HYUNG LEE, ESTHER JUN, ANDRE SILLS and JEAN YOON


For many years Korean immigrant Mr. Kim has worked hard to support his wife and children with his Toronto convenience store.  Now, as he nears retirement, will anyone keep the doors open? You’ll laugh out loud at this fractured and loving family as they face the future and confront the past.

Timely insights, charming characters and a story about people you will recognize. A top-10 hit of Toronto’s 2012 theatre season, this award-winning production is now embarking on a national tour. We are fortunate and honoured to be hosting this hilarious and touching Canadian play!

 여러분을 킴스 편의점으로 초대합니다!  (I invite you all to Kim's Convenience!)
