Constellations is a play about theoretical physics – it’s a play about quantum mechanics, about cosmology. But it’s also a play about bees, and about beekeeping – Constellations is a play about honey; about saying no to Tesco when they offer you a lot of money. It’s a play about death, about dying.
Constellations is also about preparing a romantic marriage proposal for someone you love – It’s about ballroom dancing – Specifically, Constellations is a play about the Box Step. It’s about finding cosmology sexy. It’s about small talk and big ideas. It’s about saying goodbye. Constellations is a play about never having to say goodbye
