“The Skin of Our Teeth” by The Listening Place Readers Theater

$10 for Non-Members, includes Museum admission

A wall of ice is moving down from Canada! Atlantic City is hit by a massive flood! There is a war to end all wars. Dinosaurs and Wooly Mammoths run around on the front lawn. How will the intrepid Antrobus family cope with all this? While inventing the wheel, the alphabet and the lever, George Antrobus and his family, along with their maid Lily Sabina, do their level best and escape it all by The Skin of Our Teeth.

The Pulitzer Prize winning play by Thorton Wilder takes us on the journey of humankind with all its ups and downs, good and evil, and in the end great thinking. A sensation when it first appeared on Broadway, it is a timeless epic of survival.

 

Reviews:

“…..extraordinarily good….one of the finest American plays of the 20th century, a modern classic that ought to be seen as often as “Our Town”.    

-The Wall Street Journal

 

“Wonderfully wise…..A tremendously exciting and profound stage fable”                                

-Herald Tribune

 

“For an American dramatist, all roads lead back to Thornton Wilder….”The Skin of Our Teeth” was a remarkable gift to an American entrenched in catastrophe, a tribute to the trait of human endurance.”

-Paula Vogel,  Forward to “The Skin of our Teeth”

 

Directed by Michael Bond and directed by Linda Hancock.

Featuring Michael Lojkovic, Anne Mitchell, Richard Boynton, Susan Keenan, Carl Twisselman,  Andrea McDonald,  Lydia Lyons and guests!
