FAU Calendar of Events for the Week of September 20, 2010
BOCA RATON, FL (September 20, 2010) – Florida Atlantic University will host the following events:
FAU’s Department of Theatre Presents Six Degrees of Separation
The play runs from Friday, October 1 through Sunday, October 10, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m., in Studio One Theatre on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. Tickets can be purchased at www.fauevents.com or 1-800-564-9539.
This play by John Guare is inspired by a real-life con artist (Paul) who shows up on the doorstep of a wealthy socialite couple in New York City after he has been the victim of an attack on the streets of the city. Paul claims to be Sidney Poitier’s son and says he is a friend to the New York couple’s son. Captivated by Paul's intelligence and his fascinating conversation, the couple invites him to stay overnight. As the play progresses, Paul's cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory, and his lies begin to catch up with him. His presence in the household of this socialite couple, however, causes them to look more closely at their lives and connections they always thought were important. The play contains adult content. Parental discretion is advised. This production contains male frontal nudity and graphic language.
