Dental Drama

As a part of their 30th anniversary season, Stage West presents The Skin of Our Teeth, Thornton Wilder's 1942 Pulitzer Prize winning play about...well, everything. The Skin of Our Teeth tells the story of the Antrobus family, a biblical every-family in every way imaginable. Take Adam, Eve and their kin from the Old Testament, put them through the witness protection program, and drop them in the middle of present-day New Jersey facing an impending ice age. Are you a bit confused? Well, then get the straight story at Sunday's 3 p.m. matinee (with additional performances Thursdays through Sundays until October 4) at Stage West in Fort Worth, 821 W. Vickery Blvd. Tickets are $24 to $28, with student and senior discounts available. Call 817-784-9378 or visit
Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Sept. 3. Continues through Oct. 4, 2009
