ABOUT THE PRODUCTION:
Drink of Choice is a dark comedy about an asexual navigating a sexual world. The Bartender (Holly Wyder), tries to understand her relationships by digging through her sexual history (or lack thereof).

Unable to use her phone, she is left to the distraction of her thoughts: Are we supposed to only date one person at a time? Do we have to be sexually attracted to someone in order to have a ‘real’ relationship?

If we have mental health issues, are we still worthy of love?

HollyWould Productions is committed to making art that advocates for sexual autonomy and pushes taboo conversations. Founded in 2010, HollyWould Productions premiered their first Toronto Fringe
show in 2016, ‘Getting Odd’, and has since been producing sketch comedy and web content (Female Therapy, Forever Alone, Penny for Your Thoughts).

CREATIVE TEAM:
Performer and Writer: Holly Wyder; Director: Amanda Cordner; Stage Manager: Jess Falcioni; Producer Sarah Marchand (Alma Matters Productions); Production Designer: Ellen Brooker; Dramaturg: Yolanda Bonnell; Lighting Designer: Amber Pattison; Promotional Content Creator: Taha Arshad.
