Isaac's Eye


by Lucas Hnath

Directed by Oren Stevens

Starring: Robin Gabrielli, Adam Niemann, Gabriel A. Ross* and Jeunee Simon*

What does it take to be the best? To be remembered forever? "Isaac’s Eye" playfully combines contemporary language, historical fact, deadpan humor, and scientific inquiry in a hilarious and poignant example of love, greatness, and the nature of truth.

Hot NYC-based playwright Lucas Hnath (The Christians) pits the young upstart Isaac Newton against establishment scientist Robert Hooke, the man who can grant him entrance into the prestigious Royal Academy. Two ruthless thinkers engage in a battle of wits, while playing a thrilling game of while playing a thrilling game of meta-theatrics, calling attention to the way we establish truth onstage through deception and imagination.
