The Skin of Our Teeth closed on February 18, 2018.

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

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.

Run Time: 2:30
includes one intermission


 













 

 
   

The Skin of Our Teeth is Helen Hayes Awards Recommended.

Meet the Antrobus family
- husband George, wife Maggie, and children Henry and Gladys.
They're an everyday family from suburban New Jersey - except that Mr. and Mr. Antrobus have been married 5,000 years, Mr. Antrobus invented the wheel, and the family pets are a baby dinosaur and a woolly mammoth. In this time-traveling tragicomedy by acclaimed playwright Thorton Wilder (Our Town), follow the Antrobuses and their maid/seductress Sabina as they narrowly survive an Ice Age, and other catastrophes by - how else? - the skin of their teeth.
