In THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH, Thornton Wilder's 1943 Pulitzer-prize winning play, the Antrobus family stands in for all of humanity, as we move back and forth across time and space, humanity just barely escaping war, flood, and climate catastrophe. In the midst of it all they meet both legends (Moses, Homer) and everyday folks, and shelter friend and fauna (a Dinosaur, a Woolly Mammoth). Perhaps in the end, humanity will survive, thrive, and evolve to something more human.
Featuring Alejandra Wahl as Sabina, Lisa Wang as Mrs. Antrobus, Kent Mannis as Mr. Antrobus, Jake Soss as Henry, and Anya Cherniss as Gladys.
With Janelle Aguirre, Mary Bishop, Molly Hanes, Ian Jang, Helen Kim, Miranda Tilley, John Tranchitella, Vicki Victoria, Matthew Weinberg, and Susannah Wood.
