The Skin of Our Teeth - 2017 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$85 - $95

Thornton Wilder won three Pulitzers — the only author to win for a novel, The Bridge of San Luis Rey, and two plays, Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth, which was written just before America entered WWII. The play is about fortitude and the fate of humanity, both at the moment Wilder wrote it and this moment now and at millions of earlier moments over thousands of years. And in a thousand years, if people are still on earth, the play will be about them too.

The Skin of Our Teeth takes place in a prehistoric world and the New Jersey suburbs. The Antrobus family–George and Maggie, their children, Gladys and Henry, and Sabina, a maid who is also George’s mistress–survive the Ice Age, the Flood, and war. Combining tragedy with comedy, wit, intelligence, imagination, and scenic surprise, the play, as Francis Ferguson wrote, is a “marriage of Plato and Groucho Marx.
