Constellations by Nick Payne
Nick Payne's Constellations is a play about free will and friendship; it's also about quantum multiverse theory, love, and honey.
Marianne, a physicist, and Roland, a beekeeper, meet at a party and go for a drink - or perhaps they don't. Having fallen madly in love, they begin a relationship that eventually veers off course. A chance encounter brings them back together - or maybe it reveals that Marianne is now engaged to someone else and that's that. Or it might be Roland who's engaged. Maybe Marianne and Roland will be together forever, or maybe their time will be tragically short.
"Constellations gets into your head and under your skin with an immediacy that sometimes tickles and often hurts"
"The nearest I've come across in ages to a play that feels heaven-sent"
