The show is written and performed by Megan Gogerty with direction by Alexis Chamow and scenic design by Scott Olinger.
Feet First in the Water With a Baby in my teeth is described as “a mostly-true story about a woman who gives birth and then a few years later becomes a mother.” It explores topics of parenthood, politics and pop-culture in the comic style Gogerty became known for with Hilary Clinton Got Me Pregnant and other works.
Feet First in the Water is a “rolling world premiere,” which means that after it debuts in Iowa City, it will move to Atlanta for a December premiere at Synchronicity Theatre.
“Rolling world premiere is an initiative of the National New Play Network – of which Riverside Theatre is a proud new member,” says Riverside Theatre Artistic Director Jody Hovland. “A playwright develops a new work with different creative teams, for different communities of patrons – and hopefully attains the polish and momentum needed to attract the attention of other producers.”
Riverside’s production of Feet First in the Water With a Baby in My Teeth opens September 9th and runs until October 2nd, at 213 N Gilbert. Showtimes are 7:30pm (2pm on Sundays).
