The Royal Court Theatre production of Nick Payne's Constellations is heading out on a UK tour later this year.

It will be directed by Michael Longhurst, who helmed the original production in 2012, which ran at the Royal Court Theatre and in the West End.

The two-hander, which originally starred Rafe Spall and Sally Hawkins, "raises questions about the difference between choice and destiny", and touches on multiverse theory, love and honey.

It is currently enjoying a sell-out run on Broadway, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson, which continues at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre until 15 March 2015.

The tour will open at Woking's New Victoria Theatre on 14 May 2015, before touring to Liverpool Playhouse (19-23 May), Bristol Old Vic (27-30 May), Nuffield Theatre Southampton (2-6 June), The Lowry Salford (9-13 June), Cambridge Arts Theatre (16-20 June), Richmond Theatre (23-27 June) and Theatre Royal Brighton (30 June to 4 July). Casting for the tour is to be announced.
