Following sell out runs in the West End and Broadway and a critically acclaimed 5 star tour, Nick Payne's "ingenious, touching and intellectually searching play" (Daily Telegraph), Constellations returns to London for 3 weeks only starring Louise Brealey (Sherlock, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Joe Armstrong (Happy Valley, Hollow Crown, Robin Hood). Constellations is a play about theoretical physics - It's a play about quantum mechanics, about cosmology. But it's also a play about bees, and about beekeeping - Constellations is a play about honey; about saying no to Tesco when they offer you a lot of money. It's a play about death, about dying. Constellations is also about preparing a romantic marriage proposal for someone you love - It's about ballroom dancing - Specifically, Constellations is a play about the Box Step. It's about finding cosmology sexy. It's about small talk and big ideas. It's about saying goodbye. Constellations is a play about never having to say goodbye. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Ingenious and beautiful.
