The Skin of Our Teeth

By Thornton Wilder Directed by Vivienne Benesch

Destroy. Rebuild. Rinse and Repeat…until we get it right!

When you’ve been married as long as the Antrobuses—5,000 years!—of course your life will include run-ins with dinosaurs, mammoths, Plato, and Moses. This season, celebrate Thornton Wilder’s 125th birthday with “one of the friskiest and liveliest plays” ever written, and take a brand new look at an “average American family” from the Ice Age to a post-apocalyptic Dawn. The Skin of Our Teeth featured Ray Dooley in his final performance as a PlayMakers Company member.
