The Skin of Our Teeth
The Skin of Our Teeth is an energetic "cosmic allegory" - a sometimes cartoonish, sometimes dark, and genuinely "quirky" comedy. It is a testimony to human endurance and tenaciousness. In three acts it follows the Antrobus family through an ice age, a flood, a devastating war, hanging in there by "the skin of its teeth." It is Thornton Wilder's 1942 Pulitzer Prize-winning classic that admits, through the central character, Sabina, at the play's end, that "This play isn't finished yet..we have to go on for ages and ages yet." And she sends the audience home. It's a play-within-a-play. The play struggles to survive as well, as it parallels the human adventure it relates. It's fun, evocative, and endearing, yet prophetic, and as relevant today as it was when Wilder wrote it!
