The Skin of our Teeth

Theatre North is excited to announce its second play of the 2019-2020 season! The Skin of our Teeth is a Thorton Wilder Pulitzer Prize epic comedy and is directed by Helen Fashbaugh.

The Skin of Our Teeth is an energetic “cosmic allegory” – a sometimes cartoonish, sometimes dark, and genuinely “quirky” comedy. It is a testimony to human endurance and tenaciousness. In three acts it follows the Antrobus family through an ice age, a flood, a devastating war, hanging in there by “the skin of its teeth.” It’s a play-within-a-play. The play struggles to survive as well, as it parallels the human adventure it relates. It’s fun, evocative, and endearing, yet prophetic, and as relevant today as it was when Wilder wrote it!
