Performance: The Skin of Our Teeth

Thornton Wilder’s other Pulitzer Prize-winning play, directed by Arin Arbus, has begun previews at the Polonsky Shakespeare Center, located at 262 Ashland Place, Brooklyn.

Thornton Wilder won three Pulitzers — the only author to win for a novel, The Bridge of San Luis Rey, and two plays, Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth, which was written just before America entered WWII. The play is about fortitude and the fate of humanity, both at the moment Wilder wrote it and this moment now and at millions of earlier moments over thousands of years. And in a thousand years, if people are still on earth, the play will be about them too.

Currently in previews, The Skin of Our Teeth will open February 28th and runs to March 19th. For more information and tickets, go to
