The Skin of Our Teeth, by Thornton Wilder, is a Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece of American theatre.
Set simultaneously in small-town America in 1942, and in the prehistoric age, and depicting the end of the world through ice, flood, and then through war, Wilder’s play was a warning as America embarked on its role in World War Two, and a salient prayer for a species that is prone to existential fear.
