Constellations tickets – Quantum Physics takes the stage!
It’s a proven mathematical possibility. The sums work. But do we really live in a multiverse, where every possible action and reaction sits in its own unique parallel alternative reality? The Quantum Physics jury is still out, and the universe’s mysteries continue to unfold as we look on in wonder. But in the meantime, this fabulous show uses the basic premise of the theory to weave a potent and spellbinding love story.
Back in New Year 2012, Constellations was a low-key affair. But it soon started making waves (and particles!), gaining momentum and even winning a mention in New Scientist magazine. It has won plenty of critical acclaim since opening and, in response to rising popular demand, has moved to a new and bigger West End home.
Constellations’ creator, Nick Payne, is already a seasoned stage writer, with several quirky and well-loved successes under his theatrical belt including the equally thought provoking If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet and One Day When We Were Young.
The plot? Payne explores the blossoming relationship that grows between Roland and Marianne, bringing a mind-blowing mix of possibilities into play as friendship turns to something much deeper. It’s a remarkable tale with real life scientific possibilities at its core, which add a fascinating extra frisson to an already compelling human tale.
A touching, provocative and charming exercise in the realities – or otherwise – of free will, it’s equally popular with science lovers and those who enjoy a taste of something completely and comprehension-challengingly different. You don’t need to understand the intricacies of particle physics to enjoy the show. All you have to do is suspend belief, sit back and revel in one of the quirkiest of the west end crop.
It’s a runaway hit, so book your cheap Constellations tickets with us now and treat yourself to a starry, starry night of theatreland pleasure!
