Constellations – now streaming until the end of January!

Last summer, Zoë and Peter Capaldi brought Nick Payne’s Constellations to dazzling life in London’s West End. The Donmar Warehouse's acclaimed production, which also starred three other casts, has since been named one of the top ten shows of 2021 by Theatre Weekly.

‘Exceptional performances from Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah, Peter Capaldi and Zoë Wanamaker, Omari Douglas and Russell Tovey, and Anna Maxwell Martin and Chris O’Dowd made this one of the must-see theatre events of the year,’ says the magazine.

The Stage and WOS Awards nominations

The actors, director Michael Longhurst and the rest of the talented team behind this revival of Constellations are celebrating other accolades too.

- The show has been nominated for Innovation of the Year in The Stage Awards 2022, thanks to its multi-cast format. (We’ll find out if it’s been chosen as the winner of the award on 31 January.)

- Constellations has also earned a nomination for Best Play Revival in the 22nd Annual WhatsOnStage Awards. You have until 21 January to vote for your favourites in the latter.

Another chance to watch 5* Constellations

What better way to celebrate Constellations’ success than by watching Zoë as quirky quantum physicist Marianne fall in (or out of or back in) love with Peter Capaldi’s awestruck beekeeper, Roland?

The production was filmed during its run at the Vaudeville Theatre (where it broke box-office records) and originally made available to stream late last year via the Donmar On Demand website. Now, I’m thrilled to say the Donmar has made Constellations available to stream again worldwide until 31 January – with 50% off the price! You can rent one version for 24 hours or all four for 14 days (i.e. the same play performed by the four different pairs of actors – a chance to compare, contrast and marvel).

The Reviews Hub gives Zoë and Peter Capaldi's filmed version of Constellations a five-star rating and highlights the endearing ‘mature playfulness’ she and her co-star bring to their portrayal of Marianne and Roland. ‘Capaldi is sometimes quick to explode, but so too is he funny and tender. Wanamaker can be self-protective and spiky but also sweetly mischievous. It’s a delightful pairing that makes much of the bittersweet tone of the piece,' the review concludes.

This utterly original play presents multiple versions of the characters’ relationship. It’s a story full of possibilities – and rewards multiple viewings. So whether you watched Constellations live, streamed it last year or will stream it this January, you’re sure to enjoy your journey through the multiverse...
