The Players Club of Swarthmore will present "Six Degrees of Separation" by John Guare Friday, March 15, through Saturday, March 30.
"Six Degrees of Separation" examines the threads of chance that link one person to another in this funny, often disquieting, exploration of the way human beings define themselves and classify each other.
"Six Degrees of Separation" is about Ouisa (Ruth Wells Fisher, of Swarthmore) and Flan (Jim Ludovici, of Media), a wealthy New York couple who take in Paul (Dominic Santos, of New Castle, Del.), a young man who cons them into believing he’s a friend of their son at Harvard and the son of Sidney Poitier. After they discover Paul’s lies, Ouisa and Flan piece together his true identity and their connection to him, as well as the similar encounters their upper-class friends have had with Paul. The show explores the existential premise that everyone in the world is connected to everyone else by a chain of no more than six acquaintances.
"Six Degrees of Separation" is directed by Michael Steven Schultz.
Performances will be March 15, 16, 22, 23, 29 and 30 at 8 p.m., March 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. and March 21 and 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Audiences can meet the artists in a talk back discussion following the March 24 performance.
