TO CELEBRATE ‘INNOVATION OF THE YEAR’ NOMINATION
DONMAR WAREHOUSE ANNOUNCES
LIMITED RE-RELEASE OF CONSTELLATIONS ON DEMAND
‘A modern classic: Brilliant, beautiful theatre’ iNews
Following the nomination of the critically acclaimed revival of Nick Payne’s Constellations for Innovation of the Year in The Stage Awards 2022, Donmar Warehouse today announce the re-release of all four productions – starring Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah, Peter Capaldi and Zoë Wanamaker, Omari Douglas and Russell Tovey, and Anna Maxwell Martin and Chris O’Dowd.
The filmed productions are available on demand now, until 31 January 2022 via https://ondemand.donmarwarehouse.com/
In a producing model, devised in response to the pandemic, Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst rehearsed four different casts, each refracting the play afresh. One of the first productions to open post lockdown, Constellations was a smash-hit success, seen by over 60,000 people in the West End this Summer.
Michael Longhurst said today, “I am incredibly proud that the model of this project, which allowed us to serve audiences so well this Summer, has been honoured by The Stage’s nomination. And in this exact moment when getting to see our current production of Force Majeure live is not possible, we are delighted to be able to reshare Constellations.”
‘Funny, heartbreaking. A sharp, smart hit of first-class drama’ Evening Standard

Each production will be £7.50 to rent and households will be able to watch the show for 24 hours after purchase; or a multi buy of all 4 for £20, with extended viewing time of 14 days.

A quantum physicist and a beekeeper meet at a barbeque. They hit it off, or perhaps they don’t. They go home together, or maybe they go their separate ways. In the multiverse, with every possible future ahead of them, a love of honey could make all the difference.
