The Round

About

"Imagine rolling a dice six thousand times."

When beekeeper Roland meets scientist Marianne, anything could happen. Nick Payne’s dazzling play is romantic and revealing about the many possibilities that can result from a single meeting.

With echoes of the movie Sliding Doors and Kate Atkinson’s novel Life After Life, Constellations will leave you wondering: what if? Nick Payne hasn’t just written a love story: he’s written all of them…

Constellations won Best Play at the Evening Standard Awards in 2012, making Nick Payne the youngest ever recipient of the award. His debut TV series comedy-drama Wanderlust aired on BBC One in the UK and Netflix.

Here’s what the critics said about the 2021 West End revival of Constellations:

★★★★
“It asks big questions about existence, purpose and free will but… also feels weightless and fun. It affirms life, love and companionship…”
The Guardian 

★★★★★
Nick Payne's mini-masterpiece… [his] spare but punishingly essential writing is so truthful, complex and malleable that each moment feels like a cliffhanger…”
What's On Stage

★★★★
A tender, funny, piercing play, which twinkles with tantalising might-have-beens.
The i newspaper
