THE PLAY

Constellations

by Nick Payne

 

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 hit 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.

Character Breakdown

ROLAND: (male, age 25-40, all ethnicities)
a charming, laid-back beekeeper; warm and open, with a good sense of humor, earthy and likable.

MARIANNE: (female, age 25-40, all ethnicities) a fiercely intelligent scientist dealing with a terminal illness; though she’s a serious professional working in the top 1% of her field, she has a quirky, head-in-the clouds quality; friendly, warm, and quick-witted, comedic chops.
