Constellations


UPSTAGE PRESENTS: CONSTELLATIONS by Nick Payne  

Director: Madie Farris '19
Stage Manager: Grace Owen '19 Production Manager: Leafia Sheraden Cox '20
Cast: Kim Burton '20 as Marianne
Elizabeth Lambert '20 as Roland  

Description: When Marianne and Roland meet for the first time they go out for drinks. Or maybe they don't. Maybe they meet again later in a supermarket and go out then, or maybe Marianne is engaged to someone else. In this gorgeous two person show we watch a beekeeper and a physicist fall in (or maybe out) of love as we spin through an infinity of what-ifs or might-have-beens. Constellations explores the theory of the multiverse, playing out before you a seeming infinity of universes, weaving a touching and playful love story through it all.
