“HEARTFELT…VALIANT…MOVING…RESONANT…exceedingly whimsical and disturbingly familiar…with an air of ramshackle spontaneity…a celebratory glow pervades this millennia-spanning portrait of a single family’s survival against the odds.”- The New York Times

“It’s a treat to see this seminal work on its feet.” – Time Out New York
“It is impossible not to appreciate the work Arbus and her cast have put into this faithful revival, a rare opportunity to see this important work.” – Theatermania

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.
