Marianne is a quantum physicist. Roland is a beekeeper. They meet. They hit it off. Or maybe they don’t. They go home together. Or maybe they never speak again.
In Nick Payne’s multi-award-winning Constellations, every decision you have and haven’t made exists in a parallel universe of infinite possibilities. Epic yet intimate, this funny, sharp and heart-breaking play asks which of our choices make for a life well lived.
A drama about time and memory, about death and grief, playful and profound, comic and mournful. It asks big questions about existence, purpose and free will, but also feels weightless and fun. ★★★★ The Guardian
