The Skin Of Our Teeth
by Thornton Wilder

performed December 10 & 11, 1999

directed by Kevin Zahm
Story of the Play - "Here is a comedy about George Antrobus, his wife and two children, and theor general utility maid, Lily Sabina, all of Excelsior, New Jersey.  George Antrobus is John Doe or George Spelvin or you - the average American at grips with a destiny, sometimes sour, sometime sweet.  The Antrobuses have survived fire, flood, pestilence, the seven-year locusts, the ice age, the black pox and the double feature, a dozen wars and as many depressions.  They run many a gamut, are as durable as radiators, and look upon the future with a disarming optimism.  Alternately bewitched, befuddled, and becalmed, they are the stuff of which heroes are made - heroes and buffoons.  They are true offspring of Adam and Eve, victims of all the ills that flesh is heir to.  They survived a thousand calamaties by the skin of their teeth.  Here is a tribute to their indestructibility."  (from the Script)
