MILWAUKEE — Thornton Wilder’s play The Skin of Our Teeth will be presented by Marquette Theatre at the Evan P. & Marion Helfaer Theatre Thursday, Feb. 16, through Sunday, Feb. 26.
The Skin of Our Teeth is a comedy that mixes satire, burlesque and farce. Follow Wilder’s “first family,” the Antrobuses, from the ice-age straight up to present-day. This tenacious clan lives through the invention of the wheel, the Great Flood, and all of the frustration and liberation of building a better world, as they struggle to survive by the skin of their teeth. The show will run:
- Thursday, Feb. 16, through Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, Feb. 19, at 2:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, Feb. 22, through Saturday, Feb. 25, at 7:30 p.m.
