Why See Constellations?

PlaysRomantic RelationshipsDrama

What if meets what is

Physics meets romance in this intriguing tapestry from Nick Payne. A delightful yet deep examination of lovers across parallel universes, it shone on Broadway back in 2015 and now makes its bow in Houston for the 2018/19 season.

Taking place in one act that lasts just over an hour, each scene builds a series of different narratives that depict the potential courses of one couple's relationship, as well as raising some serious questions on the nature of love and trust in a world where language and signals can often be misinterpreted though modern communication and shyness.

What is Constellations about?

Beekeeper Roland meets quantum physicist Marianne at a friends' BBQ where they immediately find a connection. The rest of their relationship, however, doesn't always run as smoothly and this is explored through a chain of scenes which imagine how their lives might be turning out in parallel universes where a different word chosen or decision made has a 'butterfly effect' in determining the future of their relationship.
