I loved this play! I find myself thinking of it long after seeing it. 

Brain work, but that's good. Need to see it again. 

Loved the comic timing, the puppetry, the 'surprises'.

Calgary Theatre Critic, Stephen Hunt's review of The Skin of Our Teeth
"The Skin of Our Teeth delivers one sure-fire truth that resonated across the stage and into the sold out opera house Saturday afternoon: when all else is falling apart around you – including the planet – the only safe haven a person can really count on is family.” - Stephen Hunt, The Halfstep -
