‘Constellations’ to transfer to West End

Royal Court's hit goes to Duke of York's

LONDON — “Constellations,” the Royal Court Theater’s SRO hit by scribe-on-the-rise Nick Payne, will transfer to the West End’s Duke of York’s theater from Nov. 9.

The third in a season of Court transfers produced with Ambassador Theater Group, “Constellations” will follow the 12-week runs of “Posh” by Laura Wade helmed by Lyndsey Turner, which opened May 23, and April de Angelis’ comedy “Jumpy” (Aug. 16-Nov. 3) helmed by Nina Raine.

Payne’s formally experimental but emotionally engaging two-hander about friendship, love and infinite possibility is directed by Michael Longhurst. It again stars Sally Hawkins (a Golden Globe winner for Mike Leigh’s “Happy Go Lucky”) and Rafe Spall, who starred in Payne’s award-winning “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet” at the Bush theater, which will be produced by Gotham’s Roundabout in fall 2012, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
