Photo Flash: First Look at THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH at Wimberley Players
Below, BroadwayWorld is pleased to share a few production and promotional photos from The Wimberley Players' production of Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth!
The Skin of Our Teeth broke from theatrical convention to win the Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama in 1943. Thornton Wilder departs from the nostalgia of his iconic Our Town to create an Eternal Family that narrowly escapes one disaster after another, from ancient times to the present. George and Maggie Antrobus (Greek for human) married only 5,000 years, their two children, Gladys and Henry and their maid, Sabina, the ageless vamp, overcome ice, flood, and war - by the skin of their teeth. Their survival is a theatrical testament of faith in humanity, stunningly told through satire, farce and allegorical comedy.
The Skin of Our Teeth plays now thru July 6th. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 2:30pm. Tickets are $10-$19. For tickets and information, visit www.wimberleyplayers.org. Wimberley Players are located at 450 Old Kyle Road, Wimberley, Texas 78676.
