The 1943 Pulitzer Prize Winner for Best Drama, The Skin of Our Teeth is a timeless classic of the American stage, as wacky and moving today as it was over 70 years ago. Wilder’s archetypal Papa and Mama, George and Maggie Antrobus, have been married for a mere 5,000 years; they have two “perfect” children, Gladys and Henry, and a vamp for a maid. Just a typical American family living in a New Jersey suburb, but also the first family of the human race, and they must survive the Ice Age, the Flood and War — all by the skin of their teeth. The Skin of Our Teeth manages the near impossible feat of being an allegory about all of humanity and the boisterous chronicle of one family.
