Seventy years ago in the midst of World War II, Thornton Wilder’s “groundbreaking satiric fantasy” premiered on Broadway with a cast including Talullah Bankhead and E.G. Marshall. The Skin of Our Teeth “follows the extraordinary Antrobus family down through the ages from the time of "The War," surviving flood, fire, pestilence, locusts, the ice age, the pox and the double feature, a dozen subsequent wars and as many depressions.  Ultimately, they are the stuff of which heroes and buffoons are made. Their survival is a vividly theatrical testament of faith in humanity.”
"Wonderfully wise...A tremendously exciting and profound stage fable."-Herald Tribune
