The Skin Of Our Teeth

June 13 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

$25

AN OPTIMISTIC CATASTROPHE SET IN PREHISTORIC NEW JERSEY, CIRCA. 1942
An immersive and metatheatrical experience that combines farce, burlesque, and satire (among other styles), The Skin of our Teeth is the story of an Eternal Family (The Antrobuses) who narrowly escape one disaster after another, from ancient times to the present.

Meet George and Maggie Antrobus of Excelsior, New Jersey, a suburban, commuter-town couple (married for 5,000 years), who bear more than a casual resemblance to that first husband and wife, Adam and Eve: the two Antrobus children, Gladys (perfect in every way, of course) and Henry (who likes to throw rocks and was formerly known as Cain); and their garrulous maid, Sabina (the eternal seductress), who takes it upon herself to break out of character and interrupt the course of the drama at every opportunity (“I don’t understand a word of this play!”). Whether he is inventing the alphabet or merely saving the world from apocalypse, George and his redoubtable family somehow manage to survive — by the skin of their teeth.
