After breaking box-office records at the Vaudeville Theatre, the critically acclaimed revival of Nick Payne’s Constellations will be streamed online.
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, have been filmed, so audiences worldwide can enjoy this ‘sharp, smart hit of first-class drama’ (Evening Standard). One of the first productions to open post lockdown, Constellations has been a smash-hit success, seen by over 60,000 people in the West End this Summer.
In an innovative producing model, devised in response to the pandemic, Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst rehearsed four different casts, each refracting the play afresh. The productions will première online in October 2021, and will be available on demand for one month, marking the first time the Donmar Warehouse has made its work available on demand on its own dedicated platform. Dates to be announced.
Each production is £15 to rent and households will be able to watch the show for 24 hours after purchase; or a multi buy of all 4 for £40, with extended viewing time. Captioned and audio described versions will be available, in partnership with VocalEyes and Stagetext. The Constellations films will be available for schools to access for free from the Autumn.
