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

Click to Purchase Tickets Online

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

Frequently Asked Preview Performance Questions:
1.) What is a Preview Performance? A preview performance is an opportunity for the cast and crew to fine tune the show based on the response of a live audience. Sometimes there will be changes made prior to opening night, but it is a full performance with all theatrical elements in place.
2.) Can I buy a ticket online/over the phone/in advance? Nope! All tickets will be sold at the door.
3.) How can I ensure myself a seat? We can't make any guarantees, but we recommend that patrons arrive at the theater as early as they can to grab a spot in line. Our box office will start selling tickets 1 hour before each performance, but we can't take any reservations before then.
4.) So I can really pay whatever I want? Yes! We don't give out free tickets, but we accept cash, checks, and credit cards for payment. Our suggested price is $10 per ticket - a truly incredible deal!

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.
