KIM’S CONVENIENCE
By Ins Choi

January 19 – February 19, 2023

Mr. Kim dispenses fatherly wisdom, history lessons and potato chips from behind his convenience store counter. A Korean immigrant, he planned a better life and legacy in Toronto. When he receives an unexpected offer for his store situated in an up-and-coming neighborhood, he has a difficult decision. Take the money and give in to the developers that closed his wife’s beloved church or convince his daughter to follow in his footsteps. Amid these challenges, Mr. Kim navigates the needs of his customers and a strong-willed family. No matter what, humor finds its way onto every aisle of Kim’s Convenience, an award-winning play that is now a hit series on Netflix.

THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG 
By Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, and Jonathan Sayer 

May 25 – June 11, 2023 

Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. You’ll see an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines); this Olivier Award-winning comedy is a hilarious hybrid of Monty Python and Sherlock Holmes. If you loved Noises Off, Boeing, Boeing and Don’t Dress for Dinner, you are going to love this fall-down funny play that is so wrong… it’s right.  

“A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY!” (The Daily Beast), COMIC GOLD! (Variety) and “A GUT-BUSTING HIT,” (New York Times)
