Queensland Theatre brings the national touring play Constellations to The Events Centre, Caloundra on Tuesday 23 May at 7.30pm. Constellations is a quirky and charming romance starring Lucas Stibbard and Jessica Tovey.  

Imagine that we all live in world that is part of a multiverse, in which at any given moment several different outcomes can exist simultaneously. Constellations ingeniously puts this theory on stage.  

Lovers often say fate brought them together, and fate doesn’t get much credit after that. But in Constellations, by hot young British playwright Nick Payne, every moment Roland and Marianne share is at the mercy of the infinite and unknowable universe. 

Constellations has played to packed houses and rave reviews in New York and London and is set to hit the Caloundra stage with a Big Bang! Queensland Theatre invigorates this international hit with an imaginative new production with Queensland-born and National Artistic Team member, Lucas Stibbard as Roland, and well-known Australian television star, Jessica Tovey as Marianne. Joining them for this next generation love story will be a team of Queensland's best young talent, led by contemporary theatre director and performance artist and National Artistic Team member, Kat Henry.    

THE STORY: Roland, an easy-going chap who makes his living as a beekeeper, and Marianne, a warm, intelligent, and witty woman who works at Sussex University as a quantum physicist – the odds of them getting together are astronomical. But when their worlds do collide, they keep on colliding, as all the possibilities of their life together – good, bad and ugly – flicker across the stage in a series of intricately-structured snapshots, from first date to farewell. 

“And though Constellations is a supremely articulate play, it knows that words inevitably fail, that they are never enough to bind two people together forever. Time, it turns out, is a more effective breaker of hearts than human beings, with all their conflicted intentions, can ever be. This story of parallel universes is universal in every sense of the word” – Ben Brantley, New York Times
