Kim's Convenience

Set in a Korean convenience store in Toronto, this adaptation of Ins Choi's award-winning Canadian play features a fiery Korean patriarch struggling with changes within his business, family and their local community — a real, colourful and diverse urban landscape. A breakout hit of the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival, it won Best New Play. In 2012, the theatrical production won two Toronto Theatre Critics awards for Best Actor in a Play (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) and Best Canadian Play. Lee stars as "Appa" in this CBC adaptation.
