'Six Degress of Separation' Opens SF Playhouse Season 9/22
SF Playhouse opens its fifth season with John Guare's Six Degrees of Separation, directed by Bill English, beginning performances September 19, opening September 22 through November 17.
"Inspired by an actual incident, a young African-American man gained access to the homes of upper-class New Yorkers by pretending to be the son of actor Sidney Poitier, Six Degrees of Separation is a witty, biting, yet ultimately sincere commentary on what drives people: the desire for money, fame, social standing, comfort, and, for the lucky, a desire for meaningful human connection," state press notes.
The cast features Susi Damilano, Chad Deverman, Daveed Diggs, Daniel Krueger, Christopher Maikish, Julia McNeal, John Mercer, Robert Parsons, Jennifer Siebel and Ken Sonkin. Designers include Betsy Ayala, Bill English, Bree Hylkema, Chris Houston, Selina Young.
Six Degrees of Separation runs previews September 19, 20 & 21; opening September 22 with performances through November 17. Show times are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8PM; plus Saturdays at 3PM (except September 22 at 8PM).
