THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH Extended Thru February 11 at the Wilbury Group

Due to popular demand, The Wilbury Theatre Group announces additional performances of THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH, now running through Saturday, February 11. Running to popular acclaim and full houses since previews, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH broke from established theatrical conventions when it premiered and walked off with the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Combining farce, burlesque, satire, and elements of the comic strip, Thornton Wilder depicts an Everyman Family as it narrowly escapes one end-of-the-world disaster after another, from the Ice Age to flood to war. The Wilbury Group production has been called "an over-the-top production unlike anything we've ever seen" (Cranston Herald/Warwick Beacon), "absolutely dazzling...more than a play, it is a living, breathing work of art" (Edge Providence), and "unafraid to take risks...The Skin of Our Teeth will make you laugh, maybe make you cringe periodically (think woolly mammoth), but it will also make you think" (The Providence Journal).
