Denver Premiere

Constellations
By Nick Payne
Directed by Christy Montour-Larson

March 11-April 15, 2017
Previews March 9-10

In Constellations, scientist Marianne meets beekeeper Roland at a party. They hit it off and go out for a drink, or maybe they don’t. Maybe they fall madly in love and get married. Or maybe they end up engaged to other people. Maybe they live happily ever after, or maybe they end up as total strangers. Inspired by string theory, Constellations is a multi-dimensional love story that asks when it comes to relationships just how much is written in the stars?
