      An allegorical tragicomedy

      Thornton Wilder won three Pulitzers — the only author to win for a novel, The Bridge of San Luis Rey, and two plays, Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth, which was written just before America entered WWII. The play is about fortitude and the fate of humanity. The Skin of Our Teeth takes place in a prehistoric world and the New Jersey suburbs. The Antrobus family – George and Maggie, their children, Gladys and Henry, Sabina, a maid who is also George’s mistress, and their pet dinosaur and Woolly Mammoth – survive flood, fire, wars, pestilence, the ice age and the black pox. Combining tragedy with comedy, wit, intelligence and imagination, the play, as Francis Fergusson wrote, is a “marriage of Plato and Groucho Marx.” 

      “I’m thrilled to be directing Skin of our Teeth - it has been my dream to direct a classic Thornton Wilder play and Skin of our Teeth which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama is a favourite piece of mine. This play is an allegory about the life of mankind and when first produced broke nearly every established theatrical convention - today it's dark themes about the cycle of disasters seems even more timely and appropriate.” – Sarah Rodgers
