A spellbinding, romantic journey that begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know — delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny.

This sophisticated date play is about Roland, a beekeeper and Marianne, a theoretical physicist.  It explores the theory that multiple universes exist simultaneously, depending upon a word, a tone of voice, an action…Constellations is a love story with infinite possibilities, involving beekeeping, the role of free will and chance, honey, and a vast ensemble of parallel universes.

“Who knew that higher physics could be so sexy, so accessible — and so emotionally devastating?  [Payne is] a wise and compassionate young playwright…And though CONSTELLATIONS is a supremely articulate play, it knows that words inevitably fail, that they are never enough to bind two people together forever. Time, it turns out, is a more effective breaker of hearts than human beings, with all their conflicted intentions, can ever be. This story of parallel universes is universal in every sense of the word.”                                                                                                 —Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“A singular astonishment.” –John Lahr, The New Yorker

“… with each iteration Roland and Marianne grow closer to one another — and become more important to us. And by the end of the play, we’re fully invested in their lives. All of them.” —Variety.
