David Grindley directs John Guare’s adrenalin-fuelled, Olivier Award-winning play.
Set on the Upper East side in Manhattan, in a Fifth Avenue apartment an art dealing couple are visited by a stranger in the night who claims to be a friend of their children.
Six Degrees Of Separation is based on a true story.
Paul, a streetwise young black man charms his way into the home of the Kittredges, a wealthy white New York couple. They are art dealers, on the verge of clinching a fortune. He is a college friend of their children, and the son of Sidney Poitier. Is he? Are they? They give him shelter, money and friendship. In exchange he changes their lives.
Acid wit, sharp observation and designer cool combine to create an hilariously funny and often shocking great late 20th century mystery.
Six Degrees Of Separation contains male nudity.
