Coronado Playhouse proudly presents Constellations, the critically acclaimed play by Nick Payne, streaming on-demand from May 12 – May 30, 2021. Constellations received the UK’s Evening Standard Theatre Award for best play in 2012. The American premiere of Constellations opened on Broadway in January 2015 starring Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson.
Nick Payne’s Constellations takes a chance encounter between two drifting souls, Marianne and Roland, and opens a door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship. Constellations is a spellbinding exploration at how the tiniest change in the details of our lives can dramatically alter the lives we live.
Suppose that life exists in a multiverse…a set of parallel existences that contain infinitely different outcomes. The possibilities in our lives are, quite literally, endless. Every possible event that could happen, does happen. And if Marianne and Roland meet…are drawn together in every version of existence…every possible happy ending and heartbreak that could befall them, will.
Coronado Playhouse has assembled an experienced creative team led by director Samuel Young to tell this poignant story. This marks Young’s third directing endeavor at Coronado Playhouse, after the 2019 production of The Winter’s Tale, by William Shakespeare and the 2020 production of Moon Over Buffalo, which was cancelled just before opening night due to COVID. Mr. Young previously performed on the Coronado Playhouse stage in Macbeth, Hamlet, King Charles III, and Much Ado About Nothing. As an actor and director, he has also been seen in numerous productions throughout the county.
This production is being featured during the San Diego Performing Arts League’s Theatre Month (formerly Theatre Week). The mission of San Diego Theatre Month is to highlight the variety and enhance the awareness of San Diego’s diverse performing arts community.
To adhere to current COVID-19 protocols, this show will be recorded on stage and streamed to patrons on-demand during the run of the show. Rehearsals and filming are also adhering to current protocols and restrictions.
Please note: This play contains adult themes.

About Coronado Playhouse
This is the third show in the CPH 2021 Season, which is the 75th anniversary for the Playhouse. CPH has prepared shows that will adhere to standards necessitated by COVID-19, while being comfortable for patrons and performers alike. The shows at the beginning of the year are smaller in scale but will have a big impact in terms of entertainment and significance. The shows later in the season, if permitted, will bring music and some of the larger scale productions patrons have come to expect from the historic institution.
The new season includes six main shows, including a FREE classic production, and several concert and cabaret events. Other exciting programming includes readings and other 75th anniversary events.
Since 1946, the Playhouse has produced over 500 productions. Countless performers, designers and patrons have been a part of the Playhouse’s colorful 75-year history.
Coronado Playhouse is the longest continuous running community theatre in San Diego County, and, according to the LA Times, is the longest continuous running playhouse on the West Coast. The Playhouse still features cabaret-style seating, which has been its trademark throughout its colorful history.
