A Brief Hook Up Drastically Changes the Lives of Two Men in Daniel McCoy’s New Play Perfect Teeth

Playwright Daniel McCoy’s new play, Perfect Teeth is currently running at Theaterlab in mid-town Manhattan. The drama is directed by David Hilder.

Kyle and Dylan hooked up several months ago after a few too many drinks. Now they’re meeting for the first time since that night, and an unexpected accusation pits both men against each other in a struggle for dignity, status and control. As the two men find themselves unable, or unwilling, to escape each other’s orbits, they are forced to decide if “what happened” in the past really matters when the present stakes are high enough.

Perfect Teeth stars Maxwell Eddy (Shows for Days/Lincoln Center) and Jose Joaquin Perez (2015 Drama Desk Nomination/My Manana Comes).
