CONSTELLATIONS | QTC (LAST DAYS)
Lovers often say fate brought them together, and fate doesn’t get much credit after that. But in Queensland Theatre’s Constellations, by hot young British playwright Nick Payne, every moment that Roland and Marianne share is at the mercy of the infinite and unknowable universe.
Constellations has played to packed houses and rave reviews in New York and London and opens this week at the Bille Brown Studio before touring to 10 regional centres across Queensland.
Queensland Theatre invigorates this international hit with an imaginative new production with Queensland-born, Helpmann-nominated actor Lucas Stibbard as Roland, and Logie Award-nominated Australian television star, Jessica Tovey as Marianne, directed by contemporary theatre director and performance artist and National Artistic Team member, Kat Henry.
Co-lead and award-winning actor Lucas Stibbard said Constellations was one of the most brilliant pieces of writing he had ever seen. “It is ludicrously romantic and funny and sad; and it manages to make science sexy.”
See Constellations by Nick Payne from 9 March to 9 April at the Bille Brown Studio, Queensland Theatre. Last days, get in quick.
