What It’s About

What if every decision we’ve made—and not made—exists simultaneously in infinite parallel universes? So goes this bracing, glorious love story of Marianne (Georgia Mallory Guy) and Roland (Giles Davies), a physicist and an urban beekeeper, whose myriad possibilities unfold in sumptuous arcs and trajectories that challenge the distinction between choice and destiny. Nick Payne’s critically-acclaimed triumph melds science and romance into Constellations, a play that comes along every so often to disrupt our notion of what can be done in theater and what it means to be alive and in love.

Why It’s For You

We guarantee you’ve never seen the classic boy-meets-girl storyline told with such creative genius. Nick Payne continues to innovate what theater does while creating characters that everyone in an audience can identify with. This production also features two of the region’s most-loved performers in Georgia Mallory Guy (seen with us in The Flick, The Maids, and Gloucester Blue) and Giles Davies (most recently seen our stage in Othello, 1984, and The Tempest).  If you’ve ever been in love, you owe it to yourself to see this. Who among us hasn’t tried to reconstruct a moment from our lives that had further-reaching consequences than we ever expected?

Why We Chose It

It’s simply a great play. It focuses on what we have always done as a company, and what we do best: tell a brilliant story through great acting and writing, cutting to the very heart of why live theater matters. There is little here in terms of pageantry or spectacle, but you’re going to be sucked into this experience whole. This show gives us hope for the future of theater, and we hope to continue to produce work like it for a long time to come.
