Constellations returns to the West End at Trafalgar 1
The West End and Broadway hit play Constellations by Nick Payne will return to the West End for a limited run at the Trafalgar Studios 1 from 9 July to 1 August 2015, with an official opening on 14 July 2015.
The production, which is currently on UK tour, stars Joe Armstrong and Louise Brealey as 'Roland' and 'Marianne', and is directed by Michael Longhurst.
"One relationship, infinite possibilities; Constellations is an explosive play about free will and friendship. Sparked by Roland and Marianne’s first encounter, the boundless potential of their connection leads us through a heart-breaking love story of endless invention."
Constellations was originally staged at the Royal Court Theatre before transferring to the West End and Broadway. The play won the Evening Standard's Best Play award and the production was nominated for four Olivier Awards. The production features designs by Tom Scutt, lighting design by Lee Curran, sound design by David McSeveney, original music by Simon Slater and movement by Lucy Cullingford.
