Constellations. One relationship. Infinite Possibilities (funny, thoughtful, and having a same-sex pairing brings a fresh perspective to it) ....

Earlier last week Stuart and I went to see a revival of Nick Payne's beautiful, multi award-winning, heart-breaking, romantic two-hander Constellations at The Vaudeville Theatre in London's glitzy West End.

"One drink. And if you never want to see me again you never have to see me again."

A quantum physicist and a beekeeper meet at a barbeque. They hit it off, or perhaps they don’t. They go home together, or maybe they go their separate ways. In the multiverse, with every possible future ahead of them, a love of honey could make all the difference.

There are actually four sets of cast members in this fresh production - we saw Omari Douglas and Russell Tovey. The other pairings are Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah, Peter Capaldi and Zoƫ Wanamaker, and Anna Maxwell Martin and Chris O'Dowd.

Directed by Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst it's a lovely play; funny, thoughtful, and having a same-sex pairing brings a fresh perspective to it.

Recommended.
