Love, Friendship and Bees: English Language Theater in Moscow

Jonathan Bex and Emma Dallow star in "Constellations," a quirky tale of love, friendship, fate and bees.

Into theater and love a quirky romance? This Sunday the Mayakovsky Theater will host "Constellations," an award-winning play from the Moscow English Theater.

The 7th production by the company, "Constellations" is an intellectual drama about love found and lost. The chance encounter of a beekeeper and an academic in early universe cosmology triggers a series of events that defy the boundaries of the world we know. The romantic journey explores the possibilities of relationships, choice and destiny.

"Constellations," which has played on Broadway and in London's West End, won the Evening Standard Best Play Award 2012. The play is currently on repertory at the Mayakovsky Theater and will return in the autumn, so you can catch it again with friends in a few months.

Moscow English Theater is a unique creative project that brings English-language plays to the stage in Moscow. "Constellations" is a Moscow premiere and stars a professional cast including Jonathan Bex and Emma Dallow.
