"In the quantum universe, every choice, every decision you’ve ever and never made exists in an unimaginably vast ensemble of parallel universes… Imagine rolling a dice six thousand times."
When beekeeper Roland meets astrophysicist Marianne, anything could happen. Nick Payne’s dazzling play is romantic and revealing about the many possibilities that can result from a single meeting.
With echoes of the movie Sliding Doors and Kate Atkinson’s novel Life After Life, Constellations will leave you wondering: what if? Nick Payne hasn’t just written a love story: he’s written all of them…
Constellations won Best Play at the Evening Standard Awards in 2012, making Nick Payne the youngest ever recipient of the award.
Here’s what the critics said about the 2021 West End revival of Constellations:
“It asks big questions about existence, purpose and free will but… also feels weightless and fun. It affirms life, love and companionship…”
“Nick Payne's mini-masterpiece… [his] spare but punishingly essential writing is so truthful, complex and malleable that each moment feels like a cliffhanger…”
“A tender, funny, piercing play, which twinkles with tantalising might-have-beens.”
