Constellations By Nick Payne
Tuesday 16 May
Presented by Ipswich Civic Centre
A Queensland Theatre Production
So if everything we’ve ever done, and never done, has happened in alternate universes, that means there are universes in which we’ve never met. Universes where I married Prince Harry and you went to jail for tax fraud.
How romantic, darling.
Lovers often say fate brought them together, and fate doesn’t get much credit after that. But in Constellations, by hot young British playwright Nick Payne, every moment Roland and Marianne share is at the mercy of the infinite and unknowable universe.
A beekeeper and a quantum physicist: the odds of them getting together is astronomical. But when their worlds do collide, they keep on colliding, as all the possibilities of their life together, good, bad and ugly, flicker across the stage in a series of intricately-structured snapshots, from first date to farewell.
Sold-out seasons in New York and London, now it’s Queensland’s turn to be delighted and moved by this quirky and charming romance, starring Lucas Stibbard (Boy Girl Wall) and Jessica Tovey (Wonderland, Home & Away), directed by Kat Henry.
