“SAVE THE HUMAN RACE”
“One of the defining American dramatists of this century. Wilder stages history as a series of giddy pratfalls, in which mankind keeps bouncing back from every near wipe out.” ~ John Lahr, The New Yorker
THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH The prehistoric world meets Suburbia. The Antrobus family–George and Maggie, their children, Gladys and Henry, and Sabina, a maid who is also George’s mistress–survive the Election, Climate Change and the End of the World. Combining tragedy with comedy, wit, intelligence and imagination the play is one of the defining moments in American Theater.
This Pulitzer Prize winning drama is a classic, whimsically profound, cutting look at human perseverance and indestructibility. The Antrobuses are a typical American family, they have always had two children just not the same two. The play takes place on their 5,000 year wedding anniversary.
