So you think you can love?

So you think you can love is an amusing account of being single and hating it.

Sonia Esgueira is no stranger to those of us who enjoy comic theatre. Her ongoing saga of the Ferreira family has amused audiences in all three of its incarnations.

Now Esguiera brings us a tale of being thirty, single and desperate. On route to married happiness Libby, for that is our heroine’s name, shares the joys or otherwise of dating. Esgueira’s trademark quick character changes still finds expression as she creates a variety of characters, both male and female, often with nothing more than a change of posture.

Blind dating, speed dating, stalking, one night stands, self-improvement, yoga, therapy, new age hocus pocus, meditation, psychics, love in a polygamous ashram in India all feature. Yes. Rui Ferreira got divorced and is running an ashram in India, together with his three wives.

Anyone who is single or who has been single in the last decade or so will be able to relate. It will give you new insight into the whole dating scene even as you laugh at it.

Sonia Esgueira is as amusing as ever. See “So you think you can love?” at The Studio (upstairs) at Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre until 30 June 2012.
