What will be your legacy?

A Toronto convenience store sets the stage for this delightful comedy about a Korean-Canadian family and which generation gets to choose their dreams. Before it was a hit on Canadian TV and Netflix, it was this warm and joyous play.

“In a conversation I had with a friend about how to combat the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes, we concluded that in tandem with condemning such abhorrent behaviors, the proactive part was continuing to write and share stories with heart, humor and craft so people listen, laugh, and can’t deny how similar we all are.”

Ins Choi,
Playwright

“The actors were crying. I cried, too … it was the recognition that the story was, in part, my own.”
