Kim's Convenience is a 2011 play by Ins Choi, about a Korean-owned convenience store in Toronto's Regent Park neighbourhood. It debuted at the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival, where Choi both directed and acted one of the parts (Jung); it won the Best New Play award. The play was remounted in 2012 by Soulpepper Theatre, becoming the most commercially successful production in the company's entire history. That production won two Toronto Theatre Critics awards in 2012, for Best Actor in a Play for Paul Sun-Hyung Lee and Best Canadian Play. It was a nominee for the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play in 2012.
