With a slight pause in our season while three brilliant Melbourne Festival productions take up residence in Southbank Theatre, we can’t help thinking about some of the exciting new plays we have in store for you in our 2013 Season. One play we’re particularly looking forward to is Constellations, by award-winning British playwright Nick Payne. First performed at London’s Royal Court Theatre earlier this year, Constellations is a playful, intelligent tale about the relationship between two people with little in common – Roland, a beekeeper, and Marianne, a quantum physicist. They meet at a barbeque and strike up a casual conversation which, depending on which universe they’re in, could have infinite possibilities. Here to reveal a little more about the play is the uber-talented Alison Bell, who’ll be playing the role of Marianne in our production.
If you love romantic tales injected with drama, wit and comedy, then don’t miss Constellations. It’s playing at Arts Centre Melbourne, Fairfax Studio from 8 February to 23 March 2013.
