One relationship.  Infinite possibilities.  What if every choice you’ve ever made and never made, exists…

Marianne and Roland are polar opposites. A quantum physicist and a beekeeper.   A big universe thinker and an everyday believer.  String theory, parallel universes and Sliding Doors moments set the scene for this quirky  and charming romance of endless invention.

Winner of the 2012 Harold Pinter Award, Nick Payne is among a handful of truly groundbreaking young playwrights in the English-speaking world. In Constellations he has crafted a work that catapults theatre into the future confronting  our questions of choice, control and certainty, and the multiple possibilities within one relationship. Witty, fascinating and heartbreaking – this astonishing two-hander is an unmissable, universe shifting show that will challenge how you see life, and change how you live it.

With sold-out seasons across the globe  –  now it’s Canberra’s turn to be delighted and moved by this ingenious, touching and intellectually searching work.

FREE PRE-SHOW EVENT
In Conversation: The Multiverse with Prof. Joe Hope
Sunday 23 July 3pm
Caroline Stacey, Artistic Director of The Street, talks to Joe Hope, professor of theoretical physics at the Australian National University, where he is the Deputy Director of Education in the Research School of Physics and Engineering.  Each year, he explains Everett’s interpretation of quantum mechanics, often called the many-universe theory, to a new batch of honours students. Suitably motivated by persistent questions, he occasionally attempts to replicate this at particularly interesting parties. Hope is ready to answer your questions about our elegant universe.

This is a free event, but places are limited! RSVP here with your name, contact number and how many people will be attending, or call the Box Office on 62471223  between 10am-3pm, Monday to Friday.
