Isaac’s Eye, by Lucas Hnath, playing August 14 – September 6

Isaac’s Eye, as playful as it is precious, flows swiftly and hits hard. For all its blunt and glib cockiness, Isaac’s Eye is that rarity: thinking theater with a huge heart.–Stage and Cinema


Isaac’s Eye

By Lucas Hnath

Directed by Vincent Carlson-Brown

August 14 – September 6

To understand light and optics better, young Isaac Newton inserted a long needle “between my eye and the bone, as near to the backside of my eye as I could.” Why take such a risk? Lucas Hnath blends history and fantasy as he reimagines the contentious, plague-ravaged world Newton inhabited, exploring the dreams and longings that drove the rural farm boy to become one of the greatest thinkers in modern science.

Few plays are anywhere near as clever… The talented Mr. Hnath creates a disorienting, ironic atmosphere, a kind of “Rushmore” plus calculus.”
