The Royal Court returns to Cambridge Arts Theatre with Constellations, an explosive new play about love, free will and friendship from one of the leading voices in modern British theatre, Nick Payne.

The story has a combination of quantum multiverse theory, love and honey.

Sparked by their first encounter of bee keeping, the boundless potential of the connection between Roland and scientist Marianne, leads us through a heart-breaking love story of endless invention.

Award-winning playwright Nick Payne’s recent plays for The Royal Court include Art of Dying and Wanderlust and other successes include Blurred Lines at the Shed at the National Theatre.

The original production of Constellations opened in 2012 at The Royal Court to outstanding reviews and its critical sell-out success at Broadway, starring Ruth Wilson and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The current UK tour of Constellations stars Joe Armstrong, whose TV credits include The Village, Happy Valley and Robin Hood, and Louise Brealey (Sherlock).

A review by the Daily Telegraph said of Constellations; ‘Fizzes with invention. Funny, tender and startlingly original.’
