About the Show:

Completed by the author less than a month after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, “The Skin of Our Teeth” (1942) broke from established theatrical conventions and walked off with the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Combining farce, burlesque, and 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.
