November 08, 2012, 8:32 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Royal Court has had a bit of bumper time in recent years; alongside theatrical megahit Jerusalem transferring to the West End and then Broadway, this year has also seen several big West End transfers, including Jumpy, starring TamsinGreig.
This winter sees the final transfer of 2012, with a warm romantic drama starring Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins and Rafe Spall, lately seen in Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Constellations, by Nick Payne, is an intimate play telling the story of a relationship between an academic and a bee-keeper.
It's been receiving very generous reviews and looks to be quite the winter warmer for couples and friends visitng the city. Good buzz around both leads plus favourable attitudes towards the direction and writing mean this could be a big winter hit.
Ever familiar with the runaway successes that can be caused by Royal Court West End transfers, London experts LondonTown.com have been searching out some typically excellent hotel deals for central beds around the Duke of York's Theatre, where Constellations opens on 9th November.
