The Skin of our Teeth

  • Artist Repertory Theatre 1515 Southwest Morrison Street Portland, OR, 97205 United States (map)

Join PlayWrite on Wednesday May 25th, as we applaud a group of our grads and coaches acting in live performance at Artist Repertory Theatre. ART has invited us as community guest stars in their renowned show, The Skin of Our Teeth.

About the play: 

This comedic masterpiece spans the entirety of history, with one ordinary American family who lives through it all. Dad’s just invented the wheel, Cain is throwing rocks at the neighbor kid, mammoths and dinosaurs lounge in the family room and mom frets about how to get all those animals on the boat two by two. Through Ice Ages, biblical floods and political conventions, the Antrobus family of Excelsior, New Jersey perseveres. With a giant cast and time-set across the ages, this theatrical allegory captures the human spirit – of brilliance, idiocy and ultimately sweet survival.

Come and support ART and PlayWrite graduates and coaches as they make their debut in The Skin of Our Teeth!
