Six Degrees of Separation
David Grindley directs Obi Abili, Anthony Head and Lesley Manville in John Guare’s adrenalin-fuelled Olivier Award-winning ply – a sharp, vivacious take on two worlds colliding.
When Ouisa and Flan Kiteredge let an injured young man into their home in the middle of the night, they open the door on a new and enticing world. But is it really what it seems? Guare’s witty play scratches beneath the surface of a world obsessed with money and fame – how can anyone be sure that people are who they say they are?
Inspired by the real life story of a flamboyant con artist who convinced wealthy residents in Manhattan that he was the son of Sidney Poitier, Six Degrees of Separation is a captivating study of society’s pretensions exposed by one man’s self-confidence and imagination.
