Six Degrees of Separation
Now Extended by popular demand until 7/2!
By John Guare, Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize
Directed by Stuart Bousel
Running time, 95 minutes.
Playwright John Guare examines the threads of chance that link one person to another — and the consequences of those random connections — in his fast-paced and affecting drama. Inspired by the story of a real-life con artist, the play follows a young African-American man who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple by claiming that he is the son of actor Sidney Poitier. No subject is left untouched in this comic, fast-paced and affecting piece.
In addition to a successful Broadway run, the Pulitzer Prize-nominated play was adapted into a 1993 film starring Will Smith, Stockard Channing and Donald Sutherland.
