The Skin of Our Teeth, by Thornton Wilder
In a world divided by vicious politics and marred by insidious global ills, Thornton Wilder will be there to remind you that there's more than meets the eye, that we are in fact endowed with a strength and resilience beyond our capacity to understand. The Skin of Our Teeth is an epic tale about you and me and the spirit that won't let us surrender no matter what naysayers do or say.
-Robert Encila, Director

Completed by the author less than a month after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH (1942) broke from established theatrical conventions and walked off with the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Combining farce, burlesque, and satire, and elements of the comic strip, Thornton Wilder depicts an Everyman Family as it narrowly escapes one end-of-the-world disaster after another, from the Ice Age to flood to war.

One critic called this play by the author of OUR TOWN,  "Wilder's masterwork, a love letter to the human spirit."

"For an American dramatist, all roads lead back to Thornton Wilder...THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH was a remarkable gift to an America entrenched in catastrophe, a tribute to the trait of human endurance."
-Paula Vogel, Foreword, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH
