Audition for Virginia Player’s Lab Series “Constellations” by Nick Payne and directed by Jakob Cansler.

Auditions will be January 26th from 8 a.m.-10 p.m

“In the quantum multiverse, every choice, every decision you’ve ever and never made exists in an unimaginably vast ensemble of parallel universes.”

Constellations tells the story of Roland, a beekeeper, and Marianne, a cosmologist, as their love story stretches over fifty different parallel universes, and their lives are pulled in various directions, sometimes towards each other, and sometimes away. As their love seems to always lead to the same conclusion, they are forced to ask themselves, how much of their lives do they really have under their control? And how much does that really matter? Is their love written in the stars, or is it just one possibility in an infinite multiverse?

Character Descriptions:

ROLAND (male): a charming, laid-back beekeeper; warm and open, with a good sense of humor, earthy and likable.

MARIANNE (female): a fiercely intelligent scientist dealing with a terminal illness; though she’s a serious professional working in the top 1% of her field, she has a quirky, head-in-the clouds quality; friendly, warm, and quick-witted, comedic chops.
