About The Skin of Our Teeth
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 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 and directed by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-Winner David Auburn ("Proof;" BTG: "The Petrified Forest," "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"), "The Skin of Our Teeth" is an optimistic tribute to the invincibility of the human spirit.
