Bad Parent

by Ins Choi

October 13-23, 2022
Historic Theatre, The Cultch

From the creator of Kim’s Convenience, comes a comedy about a couple dealing with their baby, each other, and an audience.


Parenthood is messy…especially with an audience.

From Ins Choi—the creator of the hit CBC sitcom and play Kim’s Convenience—comes Bad Parent, an honest, no-holds-barred portrait of young parents struggling to find their way. Every parent feels like a bad parent at least some of the time. Just when you think you have a handle on it, everything changes. Norah and Charles are trying to navigate their lives as parents of a toddler but are still trying to figure out who they are in relation to their son, to each other, and to the audience.

A co-production with Prairie Theatre Exchange and Soulpepper Theatre Company
