Sonia Esgueira, star of the popular ‘Porra’ trilogy, is back with another cult comedy classic in the making entitled ‘So …you think you can love?’. Directed by John Trengove, the new comedy is about dating, denial and the never ending quest for love. It opens at the Artscape Arena on March 8 and runs until the 29th.
From speed dating to one night stands and proposing to a gay man, the one thing that Esgueira can teach you is that there’s no such thing as too much wine before a first date. Portraying a host of desperate characters well past their sell-by-dates Esgueira stops at nothing to find love, including seeking the help of sangomas, psychics and joining a polygamous cult in India.
An award winning actress, comedienne, theatre producer, playwright and voice artist, Esgueira’s sharp wit and observant eye has made her one of South Africa’s most unique actresses as she shape-shifts seamlessly from drama, comedy, film, theatre, TV, MCing to voice-overs.
* There are two low priced previews on the March 6 and 7. Performances are at 8.15pm from Tuesdays to Saturdays.
Book through Artscape Dial-a Seat on 021 421 7695, or at Computicket.
