Daughter Of A Garbageman
Maureen is to comedy what James Brown is to soul.
- Jerry Stiller, actor

DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN - Top 3 Solo Shows Bay Area

DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN is a tale of MAUREEN LANGAN's 1970's upbringing in New Jersey, in which her Irish mother and Bronx-born father, a New York City sanitation worker, told her to work hard, get educated and life would reward her. But is that true?

How do you tell a girl to read and write when sex tapes lead to fame and fortune? When the star of The Apprentice can become the president?    

In DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN, Langan lambasts today's "reality show culture," while revealing her parents' strengths, struggles and secrets, as well as her own, and how that made her who she is today.  Maureen taps into the hearts and frustrations of hard-working people everywhere who wonder if they, too, were raised wrong.

DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN had its international debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and made its U.S. debut at The Marsh Theater, San Francisco's mecca of solo performance, where it was critics choice for Top 3 Shows of the year.  Maureen has performed DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN to rave reviews in Nantucket, Florida and at the renowned Irish Writers Festival.

"One-woman tour-de-force... Unabashed laughter - we even a shed a couple of tears as her stories remind us of our own." - Theatre Eddys

"Maureen is willing to be completely honest without sacrificing her killer sense of humor."   The San Francisco Examiner  

"The most emotionally moving show I have seen this Fringe...genuine laugh-out-loud hilarity" - Daily Business, UK
