The hilarious stage comedy that inspired the hit Netflix series

The hilarious and heart-warming award-winning comedy drama about a Korean family-run corner store that inspired the Netflix hit, is a feel-good ode to generations of immigrants who have made Canada the country that it is today.

Mr. Kim works hard to support his wife and children with his Toronto convenience store. As he evaluates his future, he faces both a changing neighbourhood landscape and the gap between his values and those of his Canada-born children. Choi calls Kim’s Convenience his ‘love letter to his parents and to all first-generation immigrants who call Canada their home.’ 

Playwright Ins Choi (who played Mr Kim’s son in the original stage play) will star as Mr. Kim – the proud, hardworking patriarch of the family. Esther Jun, who also has a long history with the play having been cast in the original, returns this time to direct the five strong cast which also includes Namju Go, Jennifer Kim, Brian Law and Miles Mitchell.
