Following the recent success of Jerusalem and Clybourne Park, Constellations, sold out at the Royal Court with unprecedented demand for tickets, marks the final play in the triumphant West End season, following Posh by Laura Wade and Jumpy by April de Angelis starring Tamsin Greig.
The intimate Jerwood Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court will be transported into the heart of the West End this autumn with the third in the set of razor sharp sell-out plays, the magical Constellations.
Starring two of the most exciting stars in current British theatre, Sally Hawkins (Jane Eyre, Made in Dagenham and Golden Globe winner for Best Actress in Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky) and Rafe Spall (Donmar’s One Day When We Were Young, Channel 4’s Pete Versus Life and Ridley Scott’s Prometheus) in an explosive new play about free will and friendship.
One relationship. Infinite possibilities. A story of love, honey, and a quantum multiverse. Moment by moment, can everything you’ve ever and never done exist in the same vortex of reality? Elegant and playful yet profoundly moving, Constellations blends the everyday and the ethereal, the actual and the imaginable, revealing that every outcome may only be the first link in a chain of cosmic consequences.
