about

Grade twelve students Favour, Leith, Brady, Maryruth, and Rick are best friends. They all love to act and are eager for their final high school production. Before it begins, however, Leith rattles the group’s harmony. He stumbles on five light–emanating figures, who have a message for him: together they must start a theatre company. Leith’s vision develops into an obsession and, for some of the group, reality falters into delusion.

After auditions the cast list is posted and its effects reach beyond the stage. Favour gives in to Leith’s longtime infatuation with her, Brady and Maryruth dive into serious coupledom, and Rick throws notorious parties during his mother’s graveyard shifts.

In an environment of actors it’s difficult to determine whose personality is genuine and whose is a performance. Maryruth and Favour become immersed in their boyfriends’ idyllic plans for their collective future. Favour grows anxious with the effect her first sexual relationship is having on her confidence and her goals. In the midst of everything, the end of high school looms and, with it, the simultaneously exciting and frightening launch into adult life.

His Sweet Favour explores the real–life drama of first love, peer pressure, failure and self–determination, and is a passionate exploration of friendship’s double–edged sword: friends can hold you captive or set you free
