THE skin of our teeth
An epic, timely comedy about the endurance of human spirit, The Skin of Our Teeth follows one “everyfamily” through the great struggles and triumphs of the human experience in a production that speaks directly to our current moment, with additional material by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.
The projection design is comprised of two elements: intricately animated Newsreels that precede each act as stand-alone movies, and expansive environmental projections that underscore the impending climate disasters.
By Thornton Wilder, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz
