Buzzworks to Present THE DENTAL SOCIETY MIDWINTER MEETING, Opening 6/7
BUZZWORKS THEATER COMPANY (www.buzzworks.org) presents The Dental Society Midwinter Meeting by Laura Jacqmin at the Atwater Village Theatre from Saturday June 7th through Sunday July 13th (previews June 5th and 6th). Craig Anton will be directing the stellar cast in this exceedinglly clever and quirky comedy production.
Following a scandal of molar-sized proportions, the Chicago Dental Society has gathered to debate the future of Midwestern dentistry as they know it. After CDS 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 backseat to the latest fads in composite fillings, how can a group of upright dental professionals (looking for something more... filling) actually make a difference? This is literally "a comedy with teeth" from the folks that brought you Bad Seed and Invasion of the Minnesota Normals.
