Gorilla Theatre opens John Guare's Six Degrees of Separation, a play inspired by the true account of con man David Hampton, who posed as Sidney Poitier’s son and embezzled thousands of dollars from wealthy Manhattanites. The drama has a similar concept, though it’s not the money that causes problems, but the ruthless way the young con man gains and breaks his victims’ trust.
