Openings We're Tracking This Week, January 9-15

He's an alum of the company, but Ins Choi is coming in through the front door at Soulpepper, this week, as his play Kim's Convenience takes flight. It's the story of a family, a store and the world around them. A hit of the Toronto Fringe.

This is the third time, in the short life of the CharPo publications, that we have covered Margaret Atwood's Penelopiad. After a school production in Montreal directed by Andrew Cuk, and Vanessa Porteous's well-received reading in Calgary and Vancouver, comes Nightwood with the tale of a woman and her maids during considerably harsher times.

Ottawa Little Theatre is going to the well that is Neil Simon and pulling out a production of Lost in Yonkers. Simon, after decades of mockery at the slightness of his works, went into his own childhood for this one and - will wonders never cease! - won a Pulitzer!
