This unique show arrives at the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre this November following its successful appearance at the Royal Court Theatre earlier in the year. Alongside other West End transfers like “Jumpy” and “Posh”, the production will showcase some of the capital’s best talent as Michael Longhurst directs Nick Payne’s script. With an array of themes spanning from friendship and relationships to the idea of the quantum universe it is likely to be a show that leaves London theatre audiences with plenty to mull over once the show is finished and the cast has taken its final bow.

The plot of “Constellations” concerns itself with a burgeoning relationship between the characters of Roland and Marianne, portrayed by “Prometheus” actor Rafe Spall and “Happy-Go-Luck” star Sally Hawkins. Throughout the course of the show free will and friendship also enters the mix and the endless possibilities of a quantum universe allows this to explore new ground.

Rafe Spall is an actor on the rise, having appeared in a range of film roles over the years alongside his ongoing presence on the London stage. Most recently he appeared in the Ridley Scott science fiction movie “Prometheus”, though the last few years have also seen him crop up in various other productions filmed in Europe such as the Shakespeare conspiracy story “Anonymous”, plus the Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright movies “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”. His London theatre credits include “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet” at the Bush Theatre (also from writer Nick Payne), “Alaska” at the Royal Court Theatre and “Just a Bloke” at the Royal Court Theatre.

Meanwhile, Sally Hawkins has also appeared in movies with credits like “Vera Drake” from director Mike Leigh, in addition to his 2008 movie “Happy-Go-Lucky” and television shows like “Fingersmith”. Her role in “Constellations” appears on the back of numerous other shows in the capital such as “The Winterling” at the Royal Court Theatre and “The House of Bernarda Alba” at the National Theatre.

Audiences hoping to pick up theatre tickets for “Constellations” can witness the show at the Duke of York’s Theatre during its run from Friday 16th November 2012 (previews from Friday 9th November 2012) to Saturday 5th January 2013.
