The Comedy of The Skin of Our Teeth

About the Play 

2017 marks the 75th anniversary of The Skin of Our Teeth. Written in 1942 in the midst of WWII, the play is a three-part allegory about humanity’s resilience centered around the Antrobus family. Wilder’s Pulitzer prize-winning play incorporates elements of satire, burlesque and interactive theater as it careens from Akron OH, to the Ice Age and beyond. James Slowiak, UA Professor of Theatre and director of the production, chose the play because it addresses a wide range of political and social themes, including racism, the refugee crises, climate change and war. The Skin of Our Teeth comments on human survival and ethnocentrism in the face of disaster, natural and man-made.
