Imagine that we all live in world that is part of a multiverse in which, at any given moment, several different outcomes can exist simultaneously. “Constellations” ingeniously puts this theory on stage. Lovers often say fate brought them together, and fate doesn’t get much credit after that. But in “Constellations” by British playwright Nick Payne, every moment 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. Queensland Theatre invigorates this international hit with an imaginative new pro-duction with Queensland-born and National Artistic Team member, Lucas Stibbard as Roland, and well-known Australian television star, Jessica Tovey as Marianne.
