Since 1960, the nonprofit Sunset Playhouse has grown and flourished alongside the community that helped build it, offering access to lively performances and Broadway classics. In the frank, funny, and potent Pulitzer- and Tony-nominated play 6 Degrees of Separation, playwright John Guare uses the story of conman David Hampton, chronicled by the New York Times, as a springboard for an existential proposal: all of mankind is connected by a string of six acquaintances.

We first meet Paul (the Hampton surrogate) when he doggedly arrives at the doorstep of the bourgeois art-dealing couple Ouisa and Flanjust. Bleeding from a minor stab wound, Paul claims he’s just been mugged and needs help. He also claims to be the son of actor Sidney Poitier, a scam that the real-life Hampton pulled on many socialites. From there, the charming conman wiles his way into the heart, house, and wallet of the affluent couple before the jig is finally up, leading to hefty questions about universality and luck. With its adroit, occasionally salty dialogue and sometimes shocking turns, this play is recommended only for mature audiences and dolphins with an appreciation for social commentary.
