Generations


"Generations" is both a toast and a roast of four generations: Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z. In this fun satire, we have one of each generation working at a father-son dentist office. Each character is a satire of their generation - no one is safe!

Dr. Bob has had his dental practice for 30+ years, dammit. He'll retire when he's good and ready. He doesn't understand why anything has to change: why did metal fillings have to become composites? Why did paper scans have to become digital? WHEN DID THE WORLD GET SO COMPLICATED?

His son, Miller, thinks his Dad is ripe for retirement. Miller's a woke millennial, who prides himself on going to therapy. He and his Dad argue about as many times per day as they brush and floss.

Thrust in the middle is Missy, Miller's dental assistant. Missy is a calculating queen trying to survive under capitalism. Then, we have two receptionists--Genevieve Zodokoff and Jennifer Xlander--or Gen Z and Jen X, respectively. Both of them are stereotypes of their generations: Jen X is still stuck in the 90s, with her aerobics class, shoulder pads, and second-wave feminist values. Gen Z skips work to "protect her peace," and may quit the office when her OnlyFans takes off.

Generational tension abounds in the office, as the characters differ on their approach to everything from sexual harassment, to patient care, to technology. There's an excoriating scene where they realize they're not so different...("Your 9/11 was my President Kennedy being shot.") Then, there's a shocking denouement which explains why Jen X and Dr. Bob have been so resistant to change all along. All of it drives home the searing truth: every generation becomes the one that birthed it...and your generation is eventually replaced by the next one (or maybe even A.I.!!!)
