M.J. Kang shows that fam­ily mat­ters

NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe preview 25 things you can’t miss -

M.J. Kang hasn’t been on a Toronto stage for years, but she made a strong im­pres­sion as both ac­tor and play­wright in such works as dreams of blond & blue and the Dora-nom­i­nated No­ran Bang: The Yel- low Room.

She re­turns as writer and per­former in Stay With Me, a com­edy about a mother’s de­sire to stay phys­i­cally close to her child. For­ever. Trou­ble is, the daugh­ter wants to go off to school to al­low her mother to have her own life.

While sep­a­ra­tion is a se­ri­ous topic, don’t look for too much heav­i­ness here: the show is one of the fam­ily-friendly works at FringeKids! and aimed at au­di­ences aged four to 12 (and their par­ents, of course). It also fea­tures Kang’s daugh­ter, Mia Safdie, and is di­rected by her hus­band, Oren Safdie. From July 4 at Palmer­ston Li­brary The­atre.
