Actors’ Gang Reads “The Skin of Our Teeth”

01SKINTEETH-master675This Wednesday, The Actors’ Gang’s Pulitzer Prize Play Reading Series presents a staged reading of Thornton Wilder’s ‘The Skin of Our Teeth”  Wednesday May 17 at 7 pm at the Ivy Substation Theater.

Combining farce, burlesque, and satire, and elements of the comic strip, Thornton Wilder depicts an Everyman Family as it narrowly escapes one end-of-the-world disaster after another, from the Ice Age to flood to war.

The main characters of the play are George and Maggie Antrobus, their two children, Henry and Gladys, and Sabina, who appears as the family’s maid in the first and third acts, and as a beauty queen temptress in the second act. The play’s action takes place in a modern setting, but is full of anachronisms reaching back to prehistoric times.

All of our Pulitzer Prize Play Reading Series evenings will be presented as “Pay What You Can Nights”, an Actors’ Gang tradition intent on making performances accessible to all, regardless of socio-economic status. For more info, click the ad for TheActors’Gang on the right side of the page.
