For all its teasing razzle-dazzle, though, it is the human warmth of the writing and acting that ensures the play never slides into tricksiness.
Nick Payne is a young playwright of rare virtuosity, and Constellations is his most significant achievement to date...The play lasts a little over an hour, but manages to dazzle, delight and dismay. Truly stellar.

a bit of a beauty.
It’s like a map of the entire unimaginable vista of humanity with a little arrow telling us “You are here”. ****

easily the best West End show of the year *****
I do know the real thing when I see it. And Nick Payne, a playwright previously unknown to me, is at the beginning of a great career.

Entertaining and deeply moving
An absolute delight, a little gem of a play... touching and beautiful
