Nick Payne's Constellations

Hic Sunt Dracones ("Here be Dragons"), Dunedin's newest professional theatre company, invites you to ponder universal mysteries—both vast and personal—with their inaugural offering: Nick Payne's Constellations.

An Evening Standard Award-winning dramedy about love, life, and loss in the multiverse, Constellations features just two characters: he’s a beekeeper, she’s a quantum physicist. They must navigate the infinite possibilities of their tumultuous private relationship, against the cosmic backdrop of ever-shifting realities across multiple universes.

Taking full advantage of the Beautiful Science Gallery's high-spec projectors (and its proximity to the stunning Planetarium), audiences can expect an immersive multimedia experience during the play itself—with co-programming from the Museum around the cosmic themes presented.

Proudly supported by the Dunedin City Council, Creative New Zealand and Stage South, this production showcases the work of award-winning local creatives: Rosella Hart, Matt Wilson, Kim Morgan, Matt Morgan, and Garry Keirle. Winking at the tradition of placing monsters at the borders of old maps, HSD vows to go "off the map" to make theatre in exciting and unusual spaces that suit specific texts that have yet to grace our local stages.

7pm, 23 May – 26 May and 29 May – 1 June
