The Skin of Our Teeth

Quintessence Theatre Group, Philadelphia’s home for classic repertory theatre, presents a full virtual production of Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth, starring Tony Award winner Rachel Bay Jones and Leigha Kato.

George and Maggie Antrobus live a seemingly perfect life in suburban Excelsior, New Jersey with two beautiful children and a maid to attend to them day and night. Over 5,000 years of marriage, the family refuses to let small inconveniences - a fire, flood, the Ice Age, plague, a dozen wars, and as many depressions - get in the way of their survival or happiness. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1943, Thornton Wilder’s boundary-breaking allegorical comedy is a tribute to the disarming optimism, resilience, and indestructibility of the American spirit, while also confronting the paradoxical ideals on which our country was founded.
