“One drink. And if you never want to see me again you never have to see me again.” A quantum physicist and a beekeeper meet at a barbecue. They hit it off, or maybe they don’t. They go home together, or maybe they go their separate ways forever. When it comes to the multiverse; when they have every possible future ahead of them – then perhaps a love of honey could make all the difference in the world. Follow Roland and Marianne as they explore free will and friendship while exploring the quantum multiverse theory, love and honey.

Chloe Garling and Zac Cartney are amazing performers. That’s a fact! This has to be the most impressive show I have seen at the fringe in terms of the acting and complexity. I never thought I could learn so much from just watching a show! The genius storyline and writing blew me away and the fact the two of them had to learn that much lines baffles me! Watching the two of them bounce from one scene to the other in different timelines using different dialog was so mesmerising to watch. The whole thing made me laugh and cry and contemplate life in general! They truly capture your heart and mind in this show and it’s one show I’ll be talking about for years to come! Please go see this show if you get the chance you won’t want to miss it!

I couldn’t believe how well the actors managed to to different emotional points so beautifully as this non-chronological play jumps about. They have incredible memories to keep up with the subtleties of each scene. A really interesting concept for a play and amazingly performed.

Brillant performances by the 2 Actors. A interesting thought-provoking show.

I normally roll my eye at multiverse theory sort of stuff but this was genuinely SO AMAZING. It was funny, it was sad, and it was inexplicably so entertaining to watch the actors play out scenes over and over again. Kudos to the actors cause theyre pretty much on stage for the full duration, it cant be easy keeping the energy up but they managed to do it!

'Constellations' is the best acted show I've seen at Fringe this year. The subject matter is at times brutally hard hitting, and yet the two performers are effortlessly able to transition between convaying this in such an emotional way, to an inherently comical scene. On top of this, the plot, with it's multiverse theory, should feel complex, and yet it has been written so well it remains easy to follow what's going on. Congratulations Constellations!

'Constellations' is a tricky beast of a play. A (theoretical) infinite eventualities, amongst two people, on one stage in approximately 70 minutes. What we're faced with is, on its face, two characters through a relationship. However, due to what we'd now dub the multiversality - thanks MCU - of the characters and the relationship, it's a tricky task for actors to take on.

Both Chloe Garling and Zac Cartney are faced with guarantuan tasks as performers, which they rise to with great aplom in portraying the reality of the fate that, no matter what actions both Roland and Maryanne choose, their fate (and their fate together) is apparantly pre-ordained. The resetting and variation - yet thematically and scripting very similar, are met with no shortage of skill by both performers.

I can’t get my head round the idea of the quantum multiverse theory but enjoyed the various scenarios of Roland and Marianne’s relationship. It’s a good reminder of how easily our lives can be changed by what we do and say.
Cleverly written, stage managed and delivered.
