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 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?

Founded in 2010, Colt Coeur has created and produced 3 world-premieres: Seven Minutes in Heaven, together as a company with playwright Steven Levenson; Fish Eye, with playwright Lucas Kavner, and Recall, by Eliza Clark.
