GreenStage presents its 2007 American Classics Series production, The Skin of Our Teeth, by Thornton Wilder. Peter Buford directs.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, The Skin of Our Teeth is the satiric story of the extraordinary Antrobus family down through the ages from the time of the war -- any war. They have survived flood, fire, pestilence, the seven year locusts, the ice age, the pox and the double feature, a dozen wars and as many depressions. Ultimately bewitched, befuddled and becalmed, they are the stuff of which heroes and buffoons are made. Their survival is a wacky testament of faith in humanity.
