Theatre in the Round to Present SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION, 1/10-2/2
Theatre in the Round Players (TRP) presents Six Degrees of Separation by John Guare in weekend performances January 10 - February 2, 2014.
Inspired by a true story, this play follows the trail of a young black con man who charms his way into the lives of a wealthy New York couple. He first appears on their doorstep wounded, saying he's just been mugged in Central Park, and introduces himself as a friend of their children at Harvard - and the son of movie star Sidney Poitier. Intelligent, funny, at times disturbing, this comedy-drama is a compelling evening of theatre and was named by the New York Drama Critics' Circle as Best New Play of the Year.
Austene Van directs a cast of 15, with scenic design by Sarah Brandner, costume design by Samantha Kuhn Staneart, and lighting by Mark Halvorson.
An audience discussion with members of the company will follow the matinee performance on Sunday, January 26th.
