Dental Society Midwinter Meeting
by Laura Jacqmin
Premiered at Chicago Dramatists (producer, At Play Productions), and then remounted at 16th Street Theatre and at Theatre on the Lake, Summer 2011

Honorable Mention, Time Out Chicago’s ‘Best Plays of 2010’; NewCity’s ‘Top 5 New Plays of 2010’

Following a scandal of molar-sized proportions, the North Shore Regional Dental Society has gathered to debate the future of Midwestern dentistry as they know it. After NSRDS president Morris J. Morris, Jr. is caught with his pants down – and his dental drill up- the dentists can’t help but question: in a field obsessed with profit over health, where morality has taken a back seat to the latest fads in composite fillings, how can a group of upright dental professionals (looking for something more… filling) actually make a difference?
Select Praise:
“Jacqmin’s passionate morality play in the guise of a super-smart comedy of manners is bound to hit a nerve with professionals and patients alike. And you don’t have to be an endodontist or dental hygienist… to appreciate its keen observations, bittersweet charms, and the work of its crackerjack cast of six under Megan Shuchman’s bristling direction… HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.” – Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
