Housebroken's World Premiere is April 10

Iowa City – The world premiere of Megan Gogerty’s solo show Housebroken opens this Friday, April 10 at Riverside Theatre and runs through April 26.

You might remember Megan's previous one woman shows, Feet First In The Water With A Baby In My Teeth and Hillary Clinton Got Me Pregnant, both of which she performed on Riverside's stage. Back in 2011, about Feet First... I wrote:

I have seen Megan perform many times in the past - she's fearless. It's clear from James Trainor's review that fearlessness continued in this show: "Gogerty's acting style is unabashed, heightened and resourceful... She throws herself completely into a bit, commanding the full stage with ease and energy." But it's not just her acting, but her writing that is fearless. In this show she dared to ask, "Is motherhood worth it? Do you regret it?" And according to one friend who saw the show, she did not provide a glib answer, but rather delved into the complexities of emotion involved in being a parent.

In this show, Megan explores the hilarity and heartbreak of buying and selling a house in today's rocky economy. The offers, the counter-offers, the closings that don't close, the granite countertops and the cracked foundations cause Megan to question the truth of the American Dream.
