Summary:
"Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning play brings to life the fate and foibles of the celebrated Antrobus family-- a bold and brassy embodiment of Wilder's vision of the American people. This eloquent comedy serves up an allegorical tale of one American family whose members must come to grips with their destinies. Having survived fire, flood, pestilence, seven-year locusts, the Ice Age and a dozen wars, the Antrobuses are as durable as radiators, and remain as optimistic as a spring day."--www.broadwayarchive.com.

Summary

Summary

The cast of the Old Globe Theater's acclaimed early-'80s revival of Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic reunited to re-create their roles for this made-for-TV production, taped for PBS's anthology series American Playhouse. The Skin of Our Teeth follows the often funny and occasionally tragic circumstances of the Antrobus family, who have learned to persevere and even thrive through any number of natural and personal crises, including war, flood, disease, and even a plague of locusts. The distinguished cast of The Skin of Our Teeth includes Blair Brown, Rue McClanahan, Harold Gould, Sada Thompson, Larry Drake, and John Houseman. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
