Love, Prozac and modern-day dating disasters...

Love & Prozac is currently on at the Theatre on the Square in Sandton. It’s a comedy about ‘love, dating and everything in-between’...

Love & Prozac – the perils of dating in the 21st century

If you've never seen Sonia Esgueira perform, then book a night out to see Love & Prozac – currently on at the Theatre on the Square. Esgueira is best known for her performance in the popular Porra trilogy, which took audiences on a journey into the art of 'being Portuguese' in a diverse country like South Africa. Those who saw Esgueira in Porra will be well aware of her talent and comedic touch.

Skilled and sassy, Esgueira has worked with award-winning directors such as Janice Honeyman, Neil Sundstrom, Sean Mathias and Amanda Lane. She won a Fleur de Cap for Best Supporting Actress in Two Gentlemen of Verona and also starred in (and wrote) the hit comedy show, Fela's TV. She has done it all, from stand-up comedy to serious documentary, and is a well-known voice-over artist.

Love & Prozac is directed by the Emmy-nominated John Trengrove, and is an 'utterly fabulous comedy on love, dating and everything in-between'. Moving from one dazzling (read: outspoken, complicated, confused) character to the next, Esgueira takes a look at what it means to be in your 30s and dating (and all the pitfalls that are part of this emotionally charged landscape).

The production is on at the Theatre on the Square at Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton, until 17 August. This intimate setting is perfect for an evening out and is surrounded by superb restaurants – great for dinner or drinks either before or after the show.
