Winner of the 1943 Pulitzer Prize, this theatrical masterpiece is a wildly entertaining and thought-provoking explosion of time and space. Meet the Antrobus family of contemporary and prehistoric New Jersey as they narrowly escape one disaster after another-dinosaurs, woolly mammoths, the Ice Age, world war, climate change-whether George Antrobus (Danny Johnson) is inventing the alphabet or merely saving the world from apocalypse, he and his formidable family somehow manage to survive.
Written by three-time Pulitzer Prize-Winner Thornton Wilder (Our Town, The Bridge of San Luis Rey) The Skin of our Teeth is an optimistic tribute to the invincibility of the human spirit.
