What works inspire a writer? Who do they look to for great craft, technique, ideas? John Guare’s contemporary classic “Six Degrees of Separation” is one work that has inspired Victor Rodger, leading New Zealand playwright and television script writer. Auckland Theatre Company presents a public reading of the play featuring Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Michael Hurst, Peter Elliott, Paul Barrett, Robyn Paterson, Arthur Meek and Thomas Sainsbury. Directed by Colin McColl.

Inspired by the true life story of a flamboyant con artist who convinced wealthy residents in Manhattan that he was the son of actor Sidney Poitier, “Six Degrees of Separation” is a captivating study of society's pretensions exposed by one man's self-confidence and imagination. Guare’s prize-winning play scratches beneath the surface of a world obsessed with money and fame. How can anyone be sure people are who they say they are?

The reading will be followed by a discussion chaired by Philippa Campbell, with Victor Rodger, Paula Morris, Colin McColl and the cast.
