Molar: The Devious Dentist is a pleasant comedy about the crafty Dr. Molar and his unscrupulous partner Nurse Nova Caine. Reminiscent of a fifty’s era drama, complete with an audience coach, the deliberately cheesy humor and melodramatic acting combine to create an experience perfect for the spoof-loving audience.

The plot revolves around dentist D.K. Molar and his assistant Nurse Caine, who have so far been happily replacing their patients gold crownings with fool’s gold and pocketing the spoils. That is, until Flossy Daily, their new and unexpectedly inquisitive (and attractive) receptionist arrives on the scene. Suspicious of the pair’s odd behaviors, Flossy pokes around to try and uncover their evil scheme. Romance fills the gaps between Flossy’s investigations and Dr. Molar’s sinister activities when the handsome Dr. Phil de Tooth meets Flossy and the two instantly fall for each other. In addition there are plenty of hilarious encounters with unsuspecting patients Iva Paine and Polly Dent, as they find themselves dancing jigs and hearing voices in and out of the dentist’s office.

Amusing and clever songs introduce and end the scenes, adding to the atmosphere and comedy. The intentional cliches and exaggerated characters weave together with a simple but clever plot to produce a lighthearted evening with occasional belly laughs. Written by American playwright Billy St. John and directed by Canadian singer and actress Dawn Sadoway, D.K. Molar: The Devious Dentist is energetically acted by a talented Island cast; Randall Fletcher as Dr. Molar, Annie Bungay as Flossy Daily, Donna Glass as Iva Paine, Paul Hopkins as Phil de Tooth, Peggy King as Polly Dent and Toby Murphy as Nova Caine, with Pep MacDonald as the audience coach. Join the comical cast every Wednesday evening starting at seven-thirty through July and August. For tickets or information regarding performances, contact the Playhouse by phone: 902-652-2053.
