Arts Daily / Constellations


There are countless ways that relationships can suddenly change, and Nick Payne’s drama, Constellations, takes that reality to the nth degree. Incorporating the mind-bending concept of the “multiverse,” the play innovatively illustrates the multiple possibilities of one couple’s romance, with scenes often repeated to present different outcomes. The arc of their journey brings to mind questions about the roles of choice and fate in our own lives, and demonstrates the infinite power of love. The University of South Carolina Department of Theatre and Dance presents Constellations, directed by Cat Thomas, April 21st through 24th at the Lab Theatre in Columbia.
