Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst will revive his acclaimed Royal Court, West End and Broadway production of Nick Payne’s CONSTELLATIONS, which will run at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre from 18 June to 12 September 2021.
In an innovative producing model, devised in response to the pandemic, four brand new casts will take turns to journey through the multiverse exploring the infinite possibilities of a relationship; each refracting the play afresh.
The couples are Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah (18 June – 1 August) Peter Capaldi and Zoë Wanamaker (23 June – 24 July), Omari Douglas and Russell Tovey (30 July – 11 September), and Anna Maxwell Martin and Chris O’Dowd (6 August – 12 September).
The production will run in accordance with the latest UK government social distancing guidelines.
CONSTELLATIONS, co-produced with Wessex Grove and Eleanor Lloyd Productions, will take place at the Vaudeville while the Donmar Warehouse building remains closed until September 2021.
The Donmar is currently undertaking a series of essential building works at its Earlham street home to replace key infrastructure within the venue, including the lift, plant, ventilation and air-flow which are either obsolete or require major modernisation. In addition, the works will significantly improve the accessibility of the Donmar through the installation of a street level ramp, automated front doors and more open and inclusive front of house spaces.
As part of the Donmar’s commitment to accessible ticket prices, over 500 free tickets for CONSTELLATIONS will be available for audiences aged under 26 as part of the Donmar’s YOUNG+FREE scheme, generously supported by IHS Markit. In addition, 5000 tickets priced at £20 will be available across the run.
