The National Theatre announces that the Donmar Warehouse revival of the Royal Court Theatre Production, Constellations, directed by former artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse Michael Longhurst (Amadeus) will be available to stream on National Theatre at Home, the theatre streaming platform where global audiences can enjoy the best of British theatre. At heart this is a piece about a relationship, yes, but it also concerns the infinite possibilities which the universe might throw at us and demonstrates how choices and reactions are key to development and change.

Nick Payne‘s beautiful and heart-breaking romance was revived at the Vaudeville Theatre on London’s West End with a twist: four different casts took turns to journey through the multiverse and the infinite possibilities of a relationship; each refracting the play afresh. Starring Peter Capaldi and Zoë WanamakerOmari Douglas and Russell ToveyAnna Maxwell Martin and Chris O’Dowd, and Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah, audiences can enjoy all four versions of the production from 12 April 2024 on National Theatre at Home.

A quantum physicist and a beekeeper meet at a barbeque. They hit it off, or perhaps they don’t. They go home together, or maybe they go their separate ways. In the multiverse, with every possible future ahead of them, a love of honey could make all the difference. although And this production takes things one stage further by allowing us to see, or at least choose from, four quite different couples performing the two roles. CONSTELLATIONS was filmed from its West End revival.
