New York City
The Skin of Our Teeth is a whimsical, profound, and searingly funny paean to human perseverance and indestructibility. The Antrobus family copes with the frustrations of parents and children amid crises threatening humanity’s survival. Written by Thornton Wilder during the darkest period of World War II, this modern masterpiece has not had a major New York production since 1998. Not until now, that is. Arin Arbus, following her acclaimed repertory staging of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House (adapted by Wilder) and August Strindberg’s The Father, directs the revival of this charming play.
