About

A satiric and comedic fable, and a Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama from the author of Our Town, Thornton Wilder’s ambitious play follows the Antrobus family – both middle-class Americans and allegorical characters – through a non-linear journey spanning centuries of war, plague, and even an ice age. A celebration of humanity’s inventiveness and endurance, The Skin of Our Teeth serves as the School of Theatre’s culminating event in the College of Fine Arts year-long examination of Keyword: Resilience.
