WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
One relationship. Infinite possibilities. An explosive new play about the boundless potential of a first encounter, free will, and friendship.
When Nick Payne's Constellations opened at the Royal Court's Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in January 2012 under the direction of Michael Longhurst, it was hailed by London and New York critics. The Daily Telegraph called it "playful, intelligent, and bursting with ideas with a powerful undertow of emotion" and The Independent declared it "dazzling, exhilarating, and extraordinary." The New York Times said "This superb play gets into your head and under your skin," and The New Yorker said "Constellations is at once eloquent, mysterious, witty, and brilliant." The play subsequently transferred to the West End and won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play and received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Play.
