Six Degrees of Separation

Six Degrees of Separation
November 5 – December 3, 2016
John Guare
Brandon McCoy

One of the greatest American plays of our time, Guare’s script examines the threads of chance that link one person to another. A splendidly funny, often disquieting, exploration of the way human beings define themselves and classify each other. Winner of the 1993 Olivier Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award.

The Washington Post Review

“Director Brandon McCoy’s artsy production (modern painting, white panels, silhouettes) is reasonably stylish, and the listening is acute as Paul beguiles the rich people he wants to belong with.”

DC Metro Theater Arts Review

“Director Brandon McCoy proves himself to be a master storyteller, making the shifts between breaking the fourth wall and building it up again so smooth as to maintain the fluidity of the play.”
