The Story

The Skin of Our Teeth tells the absurd story of Mr and Mrs Antrobus, their children Henry and Gladys and their maid Sabina. The Antrobusses represent a typical American family in the 1930s/1940s and at the same time they are synonymous characters for Adam, Eve, Lilith and Kain. The family goes through all essential catastrophes in the history of mankind: Ice Age, the deluge and finally war. But this story is not been told in a straight way – every now and again the actors seem to break character, lose their lines or get sick. The performance itself turns into a catastrophe. But in the end everything just turns out fine for the Antrobusses and for the actors.
