Rehearsal images have been released of Sheila Atim and Ivanno Jeremiah preparing for the Donmar Warehouse’s new production of Nick Payne’s Constellations at London’s Vaudeville Theatre.

They are one of four pairs of actors who will perform the play between 18 June and 12 September 2021. The others are Peter Capaldi and Zoë Wanamaker, Omari Douglas and Russell Tovey, and Anna Maxwell Martin and Chris O’Dowd.

The play, which originally premiered at London’s Royal Court in 2012, explores the infinite possibilities of a relationship. A quantum physicist and a beekeeper meet at a barbecue. 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.
