Stars of the future shine bright under the guiding hand of Gatecrash Theatre Company in Constellations, a love story played out in different universes.

Constellations light up the Swindon Arts Centre, Devizes Road, Old Town from tomorrow Friday, March 3 until Sunday March 5.

Written by Nick Payne, the drama scooped Best New Play in the Evening Standard Theatre Awards of 2012 and won the Harold Pinter Playwright award. It is based on the relationship between Roland who is a bee-keeper and Marianne a theoretical physicist.

Natasha Garbutt, from Gatecrash, said: "Science and romance mesh together to explore human relationships in Constellations.''

The Swindon theatre company offers actors, writers and directors the chance of being mentored by professionals in specific courses and through performance-led opportunities.
