Constellations...

Last Friday Stu and I went to see the play Constellations at the Duke of York's Theatre in London's glitzy West End.

Constellations was first produced in January 2012 at the Royal Court as part of the Royal Court's Jerwood New Playwrights programme. The play is a two hander about free will and friendship - played here by Sally Hawkins (Jane Eyre, Made in Dagenham and Golden Globe winner for Best Actress in Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky) and Rafe Spall (One Day, Channel 4's Pete Versus Life and Ridley Scott's Prometheus.

The play is told in multiple over-lapping strands with many possible outcomes of each scene being played out back to back. A sort of love affair in a quantum multiverse. And it was glorious; funny, poignant  bright, witty, tragic. What more could you want? We loved it.
