Six Degrees of Separation is a wonderful play written by playwright John Guare that premiered in 1990 – first in Lincoln Center and later that year on Broadway. The play was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.
The play explores the premise that everyone in the world is connected to everyone else in the world by a chain of no more than six acquaintances, thus, “six degrees of separation“.
Inspired by a true story, it follows the trail of a young black con man, Paul, who inserts himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, claiming he knows their kids at college. Paul tells them he is the son of actor Sidney Poitier, and that he has just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul’s intelligence and his fascinating conversation (and the possibility of appearing in a new Sidney Poitier movie), they invite him to stay overnight…But in the morning they discover him in bed with a young male hustler from the streets, and the picture begins to change.
After kicking him out, Ouisa and Flan discover that friends of theirs have had a similar run-in with the brash con artist. Intrigued, they turn detective and piece together the connections that gave Paul access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul’s cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory and his lies begin to catch up with him. As the final events of the play unfold Ouisa suddenly 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.
