Constellations by Nick Payne
Directed by Brendan Ellis
Physicist Marianne meets beekeeper Roland at a party. They go for a drink… or perhaps they don’t. Marianne’s engaged… or perhaps Roland is married. Or maybe they’re both single. Nick Payne’s smash Broadway play Constellations takes this chance encounter between two lost souls and opens the door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship. Breathlessly navigating through the spellbinding and romantic journey of being in love, Constellations looks at how the tiniest change in the detail of our lives can lead us on completely different paths.
Constellations is a play about free will and friendship; it's about quant...um multiverse theory, love and honey. The show features two characters who will be on stage for the entirety of the approximately 70-minute run time; therefore, experienced actors with an interest in deep character exploration are urged to apply.
Please note that ages listed below are stage ages only, but all actors must be at least 18 years old.
Female, age 25-40, all ethnicities. A fiercely intelligent scientist dealing with a terminal illness; though she’s a serious professional, she has a quirky, head-in-the clouds quality; friendly, warm, and quick-witted, comedic chops.
Male, age 25-40, all ethnicities. A charming, laid-back beekeeper; warm and open, with a good sense of humour, earthy and likable.
