Florissant Valley Presents “6 Degrees of Separation”

February 06, 2015

John Guare's “6 Degrees of Separation” takes the stage at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley’s Terry M. Fischer Theatre at 8 p.m. Feb. 13, 14, 20 and 21 and 2 p.m. Feb. 15. The campus is located at 3400 Pershall Road in Ferguson.

“6 Degrees of Separation” 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. 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), the Kittredges invite him to stay overnight. But in the morning 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.

The play is directed by Renee Thomas-Woods.
