CONSTELLATIONS

Vaudeville Theatre 18 June – 12 September 2021

Four new casts. One relationship. Infinite Possibilities

 

‘One drink. And if you never want to see me again you never have to see me again.’

 

A quantum physicist and a beekeeper meet at a barbeque. They hit it off, or perhaps they don’t. They go home together, or maybe they go their separate ways. In the multiverse, with every possible future ahead of them, a love of honey could make all the difference.

 

This summer Nick Payne‘s beautiful and heart breaking romance CONSTELLATIONS is revived in the West End with a twist: four different casts take turns to journey through the multiverse and the infinite possibilities of a relationship; each refracting the play afresh. Starring Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah (18 June – 1 August), Peter Capaldi and Zoë Wanamaker (23 June – 24 July), Omari Douglas and Russell Tovey (30 July – 11 September), and Anna Maxwell Martin and Chris O’Dowd (6 August – 12 September). 

 

Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst returns to direct his Royal Court, West End and Broadway hit which received international acclaim and won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play and the WhatsOnStage Award for Best Design.
