The MiNDFOOD season of

Six Degrees of Separation

By John Guare
Directed by Colin McColl
Starring Jennifer Ward-Lealand

14-29 August, 2019
ASB Waterfront Theatre, Wynyard Quarter

Suave and sophisticated, wealthy Manhattan art dealers Flan and Ouisa Kittredge are all about keeping up appearances in high-society New York. But suddenly their world of comfort and respectability is turned upside down.

Only once they begin to piece together the truth do the cracks in the veneer come into sharp relief – and with it, a whirlwind introduction to the question of human connection.

A cultural touchstone, Six Degrees of Separation not only gave rise to a popular modern catchphrase but also stunned audiences with its blistering satire of class and race relations in 1991. Adapted into an acclaimed film, this multi Tony Award-winning work has lost none of its brilliant intellect and whip-smart humour – and, viewed today, is more strikingly relevant than ever. Book now to experience the play everyone will be talking about.


“Crackling dialogue and taut structure.”
