Six Degrees of Separation
Friday, September 29, 2017 - 8:00pm

Winner of the 1993 Olivier Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. The title refers to a statistical theory which states that any two people in the world can be connected through only six other people. The play is an examination of the threads of chance that link one person to another.

Inspired by a true story, the play follows the trail of a young black con man, Paul, who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittredge. After kicking him out, Ouisa and Flan discover that friends of theirs have had a similar run-in with the charismatic con artist. Intrigued, they turn detective and piece together the connections that gave Paul access to their lives. In the end, Ouisa finds herself caring for Paul, feeling that he gave them far more than he took and that her once idyllic life was not what it seemed to be.

Six Degrees of Separation is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
