Constellations by Nick Payne
Charlotte Peters is directing Constellations, which opens down at the Bread and Roses Theatre tomorrow. It’s a beautiful award-winning play revealing a love story set across time and space. We run Tuesday 28th Feb to Saturday 4th March and it’s the first production since it’s original West End run.
Can one word alter the course of your life? Through a dizzying fugue of vignettes, audiences watch as Marianne and Roland’s relationship unfolds across time and space, with each variation sending their relationship on an entirely new trajectory.
‘Let’s go for a drink. I don’t know what I’m doing here anyway. One drink. And if you never want to see me again you never have to see me again.’
“Constellations” is a play about free will and friendship; it’s about quantum multiverse theory, love and honey.
Science and romance collide in this unusual love story that’s delighted audiences in London and in New York with Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wlilson.
“Constellations” premiered at the Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in January 2012. It transferred to the Duke Of York’s Theatre, London, in November, and was awarded the Evening Standard award for Best New Play 2012.
