Absorbing, Clever, Great writing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you want to see 2 talented actors create & recreate scenes over & over to demonstrate different ways their characters’ story could play out.

Don't see it if you don’t want to be moved or challenged. Read more

Intelligent, Exquisite, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a subtle, tender play, clever and fun, beautifully acted, top class theatre.

Don't see it if honestly can't think why anyone wouldn't want to see this beautiful play.

Time Out London
July 1st, 2021

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.

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

...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.

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.

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

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.

[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.
