I did attend the event.

Restaged presentation in this intimate space is engaging and dynamic non-stop action.

Description

by John Guare

Inspired by a true story, the play follows the trail of a young black con man who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, claiming that he is the son of actor Sidney Poitier. Captivated by his intelligence and his fascinating conversation, the couple invites him to stay, but slowly discover that not everything is what it seems on the surface. In this award-winning off-beat play, Guare examines the threads of chance that link one person to another and the consequences of lives that collide unexpectedly.
