In the 5,000 years they’ve been married, George and Maggie Antrobus have survived wars, plagues, floods, and everything in between. Now they're running low on food – and a massive glacier is headed toward their New Jersey home. An epic, timely comedy about the endurance of human spirit, Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth follows one “everyfamily” through the great struggles and triumphs of the human experience. This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic is a profound reminder that life is always worth living – no matter how difficult things get.
