Cutting Teeth takes place one late-summer weekend as a group of thirty-something couples gather at a shabby beach house on Long Island, their young children in tow.

Nicole, the hostess, struggles to keep her OCD behaviors unnoticed. Stay-at-home dad Rip grapples with the reality that his careerist wife will likely deny him a second child. Allie, one half of a two-mom family, can't stop imagining ditching her wife and kids in favor of her art. Tiffany, uncomfortable in the upper-middle-class world the other characters were born into, flirts dangerously and spars with her best friend, Leigh, a blue blood secretly facing financial ruin.

Cutting Teeth is about the complex dilemmas of early midlife—the vicissitudes of friendship, of romantic and familial love, and of sex. It's about class tension, status hunger, and the unease of being in possession of life's greatest bounty while still wondering, is this as good as it gets? Download and start listening now!
