The Skin of Our Teeth

It’s that time! Thesis production at Yale School of Drama.

THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH
by Thornton Wilder
directed by Luke Harlan

Yale Repertory Theater
October 20-24, 2015
Tuesday – Saturday @ 8pm
Saturday @ 2pm

The All-American Antrobus family is faced with an onslaught of natural and manmade disasters—the Ice Age, catastrophic flood, global war. The wheel of history threatens to flatten them in their suburban home; the play itself nearly falls apart. But again and again the Antrobuses bounce back. Is this farce? Or tragedy? Both. And more. The Skin of Our Teeth is a confrontation with the dark heart of America, the ferocious underground fire that threatens to consume us all.

Urban Stages
March/April 2013

When a young African American is shot for a pair of basketball shoes, sales triple among white teens. Meanwhile, a new pill guaranteed cure racism, advertises that if you don’t think you need it – you’re probably a racist. HONKY takes satiric look at the symbiotic relationship between racism and commercialism, while at the same time asking the question — is white guilt only for white people?

Urban Stages is an award-winning, not-for-profit Off-Broadway Theatre Company founded in 1984 by current Artistic Director Frances Hill. Over the past 24 years, Urban Stages has produced over 70 productions (mostly world premieres) including Pulitzer Prize Finalist, Eisa Davis’ BULRUSHER (2007), two Drama Desk nominations, an Outer Critic’s Circle Award, an Obie nomination, and eight Audelco nominations. Our productions of MEN ON THE VERGE OF A HISPANIC BREAKDOWN, by Guillermo Reyes, and MINOR DEMONS, by Bruce Graham subsequently moved to commercial theatres. CHILI QUEEN, a play by newscaster Jim Lehrer, transferred to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. (1989).
