Lent Week 4
'Inspired by a true story of a young black con man, Paul, who insinuates himself into the lives of wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittridge, claiming he knows their son at Harvard. They are captivated by Paul's fascinating conversation and allow him to stay with them, but discover him in bed with a young male hustler. They discover friends of theirs have had a similar run-in with Paul. Intrigued, they piece together the connections that gave Paul access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul's cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory. As the final events of the play unfold Ouisa suddenly finds herself caring for Paul, feeling that he gave them far more than he took, and that her once idyllic life was not what it seemed to be...' An exciting and engaging piece of contemporary theatre. A tight, stylized production, focussing on isolation, paralysis, social responsibility, and how we are only ever separated by 6 degrees from any other person in the world.
