Storyline: "The Dentist" is a dark comedy that revolves around a neurotic and not very good dentist, JAY GINSBURGER, and his self-absorbed best friend VINCE who is a car mechanic. When Jay performs a routine teeth cleaning on his mother, GLORIA, he believes that he has killed her by giving her too much nitrous oxide. Jay takes his mother's body in the trunk of his car to Vince's garage hoping Vince will help get rid of the body. Jay has heard that Vince has some "shady" relatives who might be able to help out. Gloria has always been tough and domineering and this incident proves no exception. The two men open the trunk to find her alive and literally, kicking!

BREAKDOWN:

(Large Principal) GLORIA female 48 - 65: Does Gloria find Jay to be a disappointment? Or is she just a domineering woman with a fierce personality? When the trunk of the car is opened she lets them both have it with both barrels! ** The actress must be willing to get into the trunk of a car. But it is a very fun role!
