The plot of the film was inspired by the real-life story of David Hampton , a con man and robber who convinced a number of people in the s that he was the son of actor Sidney Poitier. In October , Hampton came to the Elliotts' New York apartment and they allowed him to spend the night. The next morning, Inger found Hampton in bed with another man and later called the police. The Elliotts told Guare about the story and it inspired him to write the play years later. However, the narrow world inhabited by the Kittredges and their public status as people interested in the arts make them easy prey for Paul Will Smith. A skillful con-artist, Paul mysteriously appears at their door one night, injured and bleeding, claiming to be a close college friend of their Ivy League kids, as well as the son of Sidney Poitier.
