Nick's two-hander explores love, free will, and friendship through quantam multiverse theory and honey.
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 makes his Broadway debut with Constellations, opening at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater in December 2014. Directed by Michael Longhurst, the play will star Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson.
Nick, Michael and Jake all worked together before on the Roundabout Theater's production of If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, which won the prestigious George Devine Award. They will be joined by Ruth Wilson (Luther, The Affair), who has won Olivier Awards for performances in London, starring next to Jude Law in Anna Christie and Rachel Weisz in A Streetcar Named Desire. All four will be making their Broadway debut with Constellations.
Constellations first opened in 2012 at the Royal Court Theatre in London before transferring to the West End, starring Rafe Spall and Sally Hawkins. It has since been produced in France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Italy, Brazil, Denmark, Spain, Greece, Poland, Belgium, Turkey, Argentina, Japan, and South Korea.
