29 MARCH – 18 MAY 2024


“We have all the time we always had…”

The Award-winning smash hit brings together the unlikeliest of couples in Roland, a beekeeper and Marianne, a physicist. What follows is a relationship and friendship that embraces the richness of the characters, allowing the audience to share in the comedy and the heartbreak, drawing them into the unflinching reality that the characters eventually face.

Constellations is a high concept romance, a Sliding Doors to the power of 100 – and many other things at once: a drama about time and memory, about death and grief, playful and profound, comic and mournful. 

Nick Payne’s dazzling play is a beautiful rich exploration into human connections with a plot that ingeniously keeps us guessing until the very end.

Constellations first premiered in the UK in 2012, winning the best play category at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, making the 29-year-old Payne the youngest winner of the award. It also received several nominations at the 2013 Olivier Awards before debuting on Broadway in 2015 to great acclaim. 2021, it was back in the West End, winning an Olivier in 2022 for Best Revival.

Constellations is directed by Jessica Daniels who previously directed Barn favourites – Michael Morpurgo’s, The Butterfly Lion and The Mozart Question, for which she was nominated for the Best Director category at the UK Theatre Awards 2022.
