Drink of choice

Your Drink. Their Story. 

2019 Toronto Fringe Patron's Pick (WINNER)

Listed in Mooney on Theatre's "Must See" for Fringe 2019

About the Production:

Alma Matters was thrilled to partner with HollyWould Productions on the premiere of Drink of Choice, a choose-your-own-adventure semi-autobiographical piece by Holly Wyder. Winner of the 2019 Toronto Fringe Patron's Pick, Drink of Choice was hugely successful and picked for a remount at Factory Studio Theatre. ​​​​​​​

Drink of Choice is a semi-autobiographical, create-your-own-adventure piece about an asexual navigating a sexual world. Told in in three parts, or “Menus”, the narrative depends entirely on which drink the audience chooses. A dark comedy, each drink (story) ranges from mental health, sexual assault, family neglect, technological addiction, social anxiety, and more. Come once, twice, three times - the entire run - and each experience will be different!
