TheatreWorks Silicon Valley’s regional premiere of “Constellations” is slated to run through Sept. 17 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.
Nick Payne’s drama follows the love story of a beekeeper and a Cambridge cosmologist, focusing on the idea of multiverses in relation to finding and losing love. After Marianne and Roland meet at a barbecue, the play explores the many ways their meeting could go, from falling in love to not talking at all.
Payne received the Evening Standard Best Play Award for his work. It opened in London and made its U.S. premiere on Broadway in 2015.
TheatreWorks founder and artistic director Robert Kelley directs the production.
Robert Gilbert and Carie Kawa star as Roland and Marianne, respectively. Gilbert, who previously performed at theaters such as The National Theatre in New York, is making his TheatreWorks debut. Kawa returns to the company following performances in “Twelfth Night” and “Charley’s Aunt.”
Performances are scheduled 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 and 7 p.m. Sundays.
Tickets are $40-$100, with discounts available for educators, seniors and patrons ages 35 and under.
