A beekeeper and an astrophysicist form an unlikely relationship which is traced through parallel universes in Constellatons, a play which asks some of the big questions in science while keeping the audience grounded in what is essentially a love story. Concepts such as choice, control and certainty are all put under the microscope.
Written by Nick Payne, Constellations is a two-hander with the main characters played by Erin Banks and Richard Dey. Directed by Rachel Lenart, and with music composed by Tane Upjohn-Beatson, the production is billed as “One relationship. Infinite possibilities.” It is playing at Circa Theatre in Wellington from 26 July to 23 August 2014.
