The Skin of Our Teeth is a play in three acts. It follows the Antrobus family and their maid, Sabina, through a collection of scenes connected by characters and relationships rather than a consistent setting. While the characters are modern, the Antrobus family is heavily Biblical in nature and its dynamic revolves around son Henry's unseen murder of his brother, Abel. The play's driving drama involves father George's increasing antipathy toward Henry over the crime.
