Review: Constellations, Royal Court
As settings go, the multiverse is a damn sight more ambitious than most. Over the course of its 65 minutes, Nick Payne’s Constellations zaps through a number of parallel universes to tell the story of Roland and Marianne’s relationships.
Marianne’s a quantum physicist. Roland’s a beekeeper. They meet at a rain-soaked barbecue. Sometimes they date. Sometimes they don’t. They break up. Sometimes they get back together. Sometimes they don’t.
