Lowry hosts award winning Constellations

Lowry hosts award winning Constellations

Following critically acclaimed, sold-out runs in the West End and on Broadway, the Royal Court Theatre presents the first UK tour of Nick Payne’s explosive new play about free will and friendship.

We were there on opening night in Salford and here is what we thought..

A LOVE STORY OF ENDLESS INVENTION

2 characters; 200 balloons; infinite possibilities. Nick Payne’s new play about free will, friendship, love and honey explodes onto the stage at the Quays Theatre. Presented by the Royal Court Theatre, the audience are taken on a 70-minute roller coaster of emotions at a blistering pace. 

The story is a classic boy meets girl. Stop. Restart. Boy meets girl again. Stop, Restart. And again… How many ways can a relationship start; continue; end? 

Tom Scutt’s effective staging sets the characters amongst a mass of white balloons - constellations within their universe/s - cleverly lit by Lee Curran.

Louise Brealey (Marianne) and Joe Armstrong (Roland) take us on their journey with great energy, squeezing every emotion from the script, and demonstrating how changing the emphasis of a word or phrase in a repeated moment can dramatically change an outcome.
