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.

Recommended for ages 12+.
Run Time: 2:15, plus one intermission
