Yale Repertory Theatre, 1120 Chapel Street
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.
