In 2007, Girl Friday Productions staged a performance of Thornton Wilder's Our Town that managed to erase the apprehension that the work was eternally destined for middling, amateur treatment: With an ace local cast, it located haunting transcendence and immediacy, and put keisters in the seats, to boot. Now Girl Friday returns with the weird The Skin of Our Teeth, boasting another impressive cast to tackle the story of an American family that drifts through the perilous tides and various calamities of human history. After an ice age, war, and a great flood, the Antrobus family perseveres in its delicate fashion, as we all do, looking to glean a grain of truth or two from the experience.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: July 2. Continues through July 25, 2009
