9780571301966: Constellations

One relationship. Infinite possibilities. 'Let's go for a drink. I don't know what I'm doing here anyway. One drink. And if you never want to see me again you never have to see me again.' Nick Payne's "Constellations" is a play about free will and friendship; it's about quantum multiverse theory, love and honey. "Constellations" premiered at the Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in January 2012. It transferred to the Duke Of York's Theatre, London, in November, and was awarded the Evening Standard award for Best New Play 2012.

Review:

“Who knew that higher physics could be so sexy, so accessible--and so emotionally devastating? Constellations, Nick Payne's gorgeous two-character drama, starring a perfectly matched Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson, may be the most sophisticated date play Broadway has seen.” ―Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“The play may fixate on physics, but the chemistry between the two leads is potent enough to move an audience to tears.” ―Alexis Soloski, The Guardian

“The pleasure of the evening lies in the way it is both eminently sensible and completely nonsensical. Details accumulate sufficiently to explain character and plot, while throwing us so off-guard as to make questions of narrative moot . . . Wilson and Gyllenhaal are tasked with showing us how the slightest shift in emphasis can alter a line's meaning. Wilson has the more commanding stage technique while the approach of Gyllenhaal is more halting and affectionate. Their chemistry is palpable.” ―Brendan Lemon, Financial Times

“Short and sweet and strangely haunting . . . Although barely an hour long, this baby bombshell by hot Brit scribe Nick Payne overflows with emotional highs and lows . . . By the end of the play (has it really been only an hour?), we're fully invested in [the characters'] lives. All of them.” ―Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“Rarely has quantum physics felt as romantic, as lively as it does in Broadway's Constellations.” ―Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

“British playwright Nick Payne's beguiling Constellations is not only a full-bodied narrative, it's a richly affecting experience. That's thanks to the sensitivity of the writing, but also to the warmth, humor and vitality invested in it by Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson, giving two astonishing performances in a production from Michael Longhurst that's as rigorous as it is tender.” ―David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“We've been down similar roads before in pop culture, with Groundhog Day being the classic version. But Payne puts his own stamp on the idea -- and director Michael Longhurst's staging touches both the head and the heart deeply. Even Tom Scutt's lovely set, a bare stage below and beside a huge collection of inflated white balloons, packs a poetic touch. And the cast is swoon-worthy. Gyllenhaal is laid-back and ever-genuine as the passive Roland. Wilson, a two-time Olivier Award winner, is sensual and irresistibly carefree -- a perfect foil. Together, they have something elusive: combustible chemistry. Heavenly sparks ensue.” ―Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News

Constellations is smart but not dry; its focus is on the personal and emotional, and Gyllenhaal and Wilson reboot themselves convincingly at every stutter and turn. They're wonderfully multiversatile.” ―Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

“Despite abrupt scene and mood fluctuations, Gyllenhaal and Wilson perform the tricky repetitions and time shifts with breathtaking smoothness. Wilson expressively signals Marianne's emotions, whether glee or mischief or heartbreaking vulnerability. Gyllenhaal's performance is more opaque, yet he infuses Roland with decency and an earnest desire to communicate with the better-educated, more emotional Marianne.” ―Jennifer Farrar, Associated Press

“Intimate and cosmic concerns are woven together with such grace that they seem inextricable.” ―Elysa Gardner, USA Today

“The actors give true tour-de-force performances ... Wilson, a two-time Olivier award-winner honored on Sunday as best actress in a TV series, duels and parries with her partner to memorable effect, whether she's a sloppily emotional figure out on a first date, or an academic methodically enchanted by the mysteries of the universe.” ―Robert Kahn, NBC

“[Nick Payne is] one of the most dazzlingly gifted dramatists of a new generation--sharp, funny, wise, humane.” ―Vogue

“The nearest I've come across in ages to a play that feels heaven-sent.” ―Matt Wolf, The New York Times

Constellations gets into your head and under your skin with an immediacy that sometimes tickles and often hurts.” ―Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Spry, funny and ultimately very moving . . . A touchingly original study of a relationship and a meditation on that all too familiar refrain: ‘if only.'” ―Sarah Hemming, Financial Times

“Wondrously supple . . . The trick the playwright pulls off is to bring a feather-light touch to weighty themes.” ―Maxie Szalwinska, The Sunday Times

“Beautiful and brilliant . . . Seldom has a play felt so exhilarating.” ―Georgina Brown, Mail on Sunday

“The phrase ‘emotionally satisfying' is rarely seen alongside that of ‘experimental drama'--which makes Nick Payne's arresting, intelligent new play Constellations all the more exciting.” ―David Benedict, Variety

“I do know the real thing when I see it. And Nick Payne, a playwright previously unknown to me, is at the beginning of a great career.” ―John Lahr, The New Yorker

“Payne is undoubtedly one of the brightest sparks in our playwriting landscape.” ―Fiona Mountford, London Evening Standard

“I know it's only January, but if I see a more ingenious, touching and intellectually searching play than Constellations this year, I will count myself very lucky.” ―Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph

“Not since Mike Bartlett's Cock, so to speak, have I been so exhilarated by a new play . . . Extraordinary.” ―Paul Taylor, The Independent
