VALDOSTA, Ga. — Valdosta State University Theatre and Dance will present Thornton Wilder’s "The Skin of Our Teeth" from February 21-27 on the Lab Theatre stage.

Finished by Wilder less than one month after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, "The Skin of Our Teeth" is a three-part allegory that combines elements of the comic strip, farce, burlesque, and satire to depict an "everyman family" — the Antrobuses — as they narrowly escape one end-of-the-world disaster after another, from the Ice Age to flood to war. Audience members who have read and studied the Bible will notice many parallels between members of the Antrobus family and a few characters from the sacred scripture.

Tickets for "The Skin of Our Teeth" are $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens, $8 for children and non-VSU students, and free for VSU students.
