"In the quantum multiverse, every choice, every decision you've ever and never made exists in an unimaginably vast ensemble parallel universes."
Try to think about all of the choices you've made, big and small. Then imagine all of the "What Ifs" that could have happened instead, and how any different scenario could have drastically changed the outcome of your life.
Nick Payne's Constellations is an intensely thought-provoking play that avoids looking at life through the linear, and instead allows the audience to catch glimpses of the many "parallel universes" that exist for the relationship between Roland and Marianne, who first meet at a barbecue organized by a mutual friend.
The play is fast-paced and fascinating, a completely unique theatrical venture with an unusual structure. The somewhat abstract and confusing concept of telling a story through parallel universes is no barrier to creating an intimate, sensitive, emotional, and fully satisfying experience -- in fact, you will find yourself completely sucked in by each one, and each of them together tells a powerful story that left many audience members in tears.
Constellations will be playing at the Duke of York's Theatre on the West End for a strictly limited 9 week run that ends January 5th. This is the play's second appearance in the London theatre scene after it's completely sold-out run at The Royal Court Theatre earlier this year, which was heralded with rave reviews from The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, The Independent, Time Out, and many others.
Ticket prices range from £25 to £49.50, and the theatre also offers 20 day seats for each performance in the front of the stalls for only £10 (what are day seats?).
Don't miss out on a chance to experience this special new play.
