The Skin of Our Teeth Overview

The Skin of Our Teeth is the Pulitzer Prize winning play written by Thornton Wilder that distorts time and the tradition of theater. It is an allegory where people are what they seem to be, and also something other than what they seem to be. In Act One, the Antrobus family seems to be a typical middle class American family except for the fact that they have a baby dinosaur and a wooly mammoth as household pets.
