About Us

Founded in 2009, How Far? Productions is a theatre company that is passionate about sharing stories that aren’t often shared, focusing on LGBTQ stories.

We believe stories and culture are essential to how we exist in the world, how we perceive ourselves and others, and how we learn to empathize and connect with each other across experiential divides.

Addition: An Unconventional Love Story

2013 — interPLAY Festival
2009 — Edmonton International Fringe Festival (Premiere)

 

Design: Tess Chappell

Using the conventions and structure of a romantic comedy, Addition: An Unconventional Love Story co-opts them to break out of the heteronormative mould and share the story of the formation of a polyamourous relationship. Ben and Logan are bored with their sex life and in an effort to liven things up, they approach Daren, a former farm boy who brings them more than they bargained for. Addition… is a rom-com where boy and boy meet boy.
