ABOUT THE SHOWS:
The Skin of Our Teeth
Running Thursday, February 23 – Sunday, March 5, 2023
By Thornton Wilder, Directed by Toby Vera Bercovici
Outcalt Theatre
Combining farce, burlesque, satire, and elements of the comic strip, author Thornton Wilder depicts an Everyman family as it narrowly escapes one end-of-the-world disaster after another, from the Ice Age to flood to war. Written in 1942, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH broke from established theatrical conventions and walked off with the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

By the Way, Meet Vera Stark
Thursday, April 20 – 30, 2023
By Lynn Nottage, Directed by Sheffia Randall-Nickerson 
The Helen Theatre
Writer Lynn Nottage draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood. BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK is a 70-year journey through the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star... desperately grasping to hold on to her career.
