Award-Winning Comedy "A Vegan Killed My Marriage" comes to Theatre on the Square*

Get ready for a side-splitting one-man show as Durban-based actor Aaron McIlroy stars in A Vegan Killed My Marriage, by multi-award winning director and writer, Craig Freimond. This hilarious production, which won a Bronze Ovation Award at the 2023 National Arts Festival, comes to The Theatre on the Square in Johannesburg from July 1 - 14.

McIlroy, known for his iconic roles in the Spud movie franchise and numerous stage blockbusters, returns to The Theatre on the Square with this long-awaited solo performance. Aaron plays James, the self-proclaimed "King of the Braai - a red-blooded, meat-eating South African male" who undergoes a life-changing experience during a work trip in the KZN Midlands. Fuelled by the impending climate crisis, he makes the life-changing decision to become a vegetarian, much to the dismay of his meat-loving wife.

As James navigates this drastic conversion, the skirmishes at home escalate into a full-blown war. Is it a midlife crisis or will this fundamental change affect everything in James's life, not just food? He may need some new friends, too! McIlroy's brilliant comedic timing and impressive range brings this relatable and entertaining story to life.

Acclaimed writer and director, Craig Freimond's A Vegan Killed My Marriage promises to be a night of hilarity and reflection. Don't miss out on this unforgettable performance!
