Travel the span of time to save your family from extinction.

January 11 - February 18, 2018
The Skin of Our Teeth
by Thornton Wilder
directed by Mary Hall Surface

The Eternal Family is made up of George and Maggie Antrobus (married only 5,000 years), their two children Gladys and Henry (perfect in every way), and the maid Sabina (the archetypal seductress). Together they survive an ice age, The Flood and an apocalyptic war. Far ahead of its time, this tragicomedy breaks away from established theatrical conventions and mixes farce, burlesque, satire and absurdism. Featuring a woolly mammoth and a dinosaur as the family pets, an Atlantic City fortuneteller, and a bomb shelter brimming with books, this epic saga is hilarious and inspiring. Winner of the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama.

Caught in a social revolution, a young servant girl named Grusha promises her heart to a soldier on his way into battle. Soon the city is aflame and Grusha risks everything and becomes a refugee to save an abandoned baby. She must tiptoe across a precarious rope bridge strung across a gaping chasm in order to escape the enemy. In this corrupt and violent world, Grusha relies on compassion and perseverance to begin her own family. Brecht's epic adventure tale features vivid characters, high stakes scenarios and live music.
