On November 18, 1942, Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Skin of Our Teeth" opened at the Plymouth Theater on Broadway. Ahead of its time, the play transports audience members into the lives of the Antrobus family—George and Maggie, their children, Gladys and Henry, and Sabina, the maid/George's mistress—who face the contemporary challenges of an election, drastic changes in climate, trying to stay faithful in a marriage, and the end of the world. A witty classic American drama from the author of "Our Town," the play is being staged by Voice Theater at the Byrdcliffe Theater in Woodstock July 6 to 23 with performances Thursday to Saturday at 7:30pm and a matinee Sundays at 2pm. Tickets: $25, students and seniors $20. (845) 679-0154; Voicetheater.org.
