One relationship. Infinite possibilities.
Marianne and Roland meet at a barbecue. They are single, or recently single or in a relationship or married? Perhaps they go on a date and fall in love, or perhaps it doesn't go well? Maybe they get together and they break up? After a chance encounter at a dance lesson preparing for an upcoming wedding, they get back together, or maybe Marianne reveals that she's now engaged to someone else. Or perhaps Roland is engaged. Or what if Roland and Marianne navigate all of this and get married? Or what if their time together is cut tragically short?
“In the quantum multiverse, every choice, every decision you've ever and never made exists in an unimaginably vast ensemble of parallel universes.”
Does free will exist? Or are we playing out one of a multitude of predetermined possibilities?
Nick Payne's touching and funny multi award-winning play is about many things - String theory, the multiverse, free will, choice, honey - but it's also about what it is to love someone so much that you will put their needs before your own, no matter the cost.
