The two-character play about a relationship against the background of quantum physics played the Royal Court’s Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in London in January 2012. The production was directed by Michael Longhurst who will be repeating his staging for this staging. Gyllenhaal, Payne and Longhurst also collaborated on If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet, which played Off-Broadway in a Roundabout Theatre Company production in 2012. Additional casting and the creative team will be announced soon.

Constellations is presented as part of MTC’s 2014-2015 season, joining the previously announced world premiere productions of The Country House by Donald Margulies, directed by Daniel Sullivan starring Blythe Danner; Lost Lake by David Auburn, directed by Daniel Sullivan starring John Hawkes and Tracie Thoms; and The World of Extreme Happiness by Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig, directed by Eric Ting. Additional productions for the 2014-2015 season will be announced shortly.
