Nick Payne’s Constellations is a play about free will and friendship; it’s also about Quantum Multiverse Theory, love, and honey. Starring Keegan Bockhorst as Roland and Ariel Greenspoon as Marianne, this play is sure to keep you thinking even after the final bows.
A physicist and a beekeeper meet at a party. They hit it off and go for a drink. Or perhaps they don’t. Perhaps she is engaged to someone else, perhaps he is. Maybe she breaks his heart, maybe he breaks hers. Even in quantum parallel universes, in which every possibility exists, love stings like a bee. Time, it turns out, is a more effective breaker of hearts than human beings. Written in the stars, Constellations is an immersive multimedia banquet presented in the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater in collaboration with the Museum of Discovery.
Featured presenters will also contribute to the production after Friday performances of Constellations:
