The most successful new Canadian play of the past decade, KIM’S CONVENIENCE – set in a Korean family convenience store – is a hilarious and heartwarming ode to generations of immigrants. Mr. Kim is a first generation Korean immigrant and the proud owner of Kim’s Convenience for 30 years. Now he’s desperately – and hilariously – trying to grapple with both a changing neighborhood landscape and the chasm between him and his second-generation offspring. Before KIM’S CONVENIENCE became a hit on Canadian TV and Netflix, he made audiences laugh with this warm and joyful play.

“Guy meets Girl” in this tender love story between a struggling Irish musician on the verge of giving up and a Czech immigrant who plays the piano and reminds him how to dream.
