Well-acted, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you think you'll enjoy a non-linear two-hander that tells a basic story, but really highlights the acting.

Don't see it if you don't like non-linear plays. Read more

The London Evening Standard

This is a short, sharp, smart hit of first-class drama, that humanises the randomness of the universe.

But it’s a zingy, entertaining play. Atim and Jeremiah nail it. Wanamaker and Capaldi don’t quite. There will be some universes where it’s the opposite. But it’s hard to imagine there are any in which ‘Constellations’ doesn’t add a little magic to our summer.

...it is also testimony to Michael Longhurst’s direction that the play feels alive with ideas, action and fizz, but is balanced with stillness and depth.

Jeremiah and Atim were solid and amiable, but Capaldi and Wanamaker dug deeper. Instead of just portraying characters, they became them...As a technical study, it’s fascinating viewing for any students of drama.

Think Tom Stoppard meets Sliding Doors...This ingenious revival, by original director Michael Longhust, offers four casts — and yet more variations...A starry triumph.

[Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah] is a magical pairing, and a well nigh flawless 75 minutes of theatre...It's a total pleasure to re-encounter this magnificent play in Michael Longhurst's boldly imaginative staging.

By opening the play out to multiple casts, it comes to feel more of a metatheatrical exercise – its dramatic mechanics more apparent – and less an eviscerating exploration of the universe.

Atim and Jeremiah give a masterclass in presenting the shifting possibilities of interpretation, of inflection and body language, in each fresh take on these short scenes.
