Kim’s Convenience

By Ins Choi

February 13–March 28, 2020

All performances of the Kim’s Convenience tour are cancelled (Maple Ridge, Burnaby, Kelowna, Cranbrook, Revelstoke, Nanaimo, Duncan). We ask for the patience of patrons as they wait to be contacted by these venues.

A corner store comedy

Mr. Kim, a Korean shopkeeper, grapples with both a changing neighbourhood landscape and the chasm between him and his second-generation offspring. This journey of a fractured but loving family forgiving the past and confronting the future is a new Canadian classic. Ins Choi’s hilarious and touching debut play inspired the hit TV show of the same name.

Based on Pacific Theatre’s 2018 production

Running time: 1 hour, 10 minutes, with no intermission

Contains mature themes and some strong language. Programming, dates, and creative team subject to change.

Tour Production Sponsor Sandman Hotels Inns and Suites
