The arts are important to many living in coastal Orange County. If you enjoy going to a play, consider purchasing tickets for Kim’s Convenience. This is the most successful new Canadian play out in the last 10 years. The play is set in a family-run Korean convenience store. The play is hilarious and pays homage to generations of immigrants. The play centers around Mr. Kim, who is a first-generation Korean immigrant. He has owned Kim’s Convenience for 30 years. The play looks into his struggle to deal with a changing landscape in the neighborhood and his second-generation off spring. This play was the springboard for the popular show on Canadian TV and on Netflix.

The play is running now through October 9th at The Laguna Playhouse, which is located at 606 Laguna Canyon Rd. in Laguna Beach. The run time for this play is one hour and ten minutes with no intermission. The play is directed by Jon Lawrence Rivera and stars Yong Kim, Gavin KAwin Lee, Susane Lee, Clinton Lowe, and Janet Song. Be ready to laugh when you come for the show and talk about the punch lines as you head back to your coastal Orange County home.
