At Soulpepper until July 4th, Kim’s Convenience is a play with humour, heart, and smarts that has real Toronto texture. Written by Ins Choi, I saw it a couple weeks ago and loved it. Check it out if you can.
Equally inspiring are Brian Rea’s illustrations for Soulpepper’s 2012 season. Soulpepper has always had wonderful posters and this year is no exception- a collection of gorgeous, graphic distillations of the plays they promote. Hard to say, but my favorite might be the one he did for Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. Check out other examples of Brian Rea’s terrific work here.
