Inspired by a true story, the play follows the trail of Paul, who introduces himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple trying very hard to keep from falling through the upper-crust. Paul has just been mugged, and happens to be the son of the acclaimed actor Sydney Poitier. Upon taking the charming young man into their home, Flan and Ouisa quickly discover that things with their houseguest may not be what they seem. Despite their brief encounter, when Paul vanishes, his impact on their lives manages to linger. Heralded as a “tragicomic masterpiece” and “the most intelligent, immediate and artful American play in years”, Six Degrees of Separation provides us with a startling display of contemporary urban life, asking us to examine the importance of appearances and how we are connected to each other – and what those connections truly mean.

“I read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people. Six degrees of separation. Between us and everybody else on this planet. The president of the United States. A gondolier in Venice. Fill in the names. I find that A) tremendously comforting that we’re so close and B) like Chinese water torture we’re so close. Because you have to find the right six people to make the connection.” – Ouise in John Gueare’s Six Degrees of Separation
