Event Details

To better understand light and optics, the 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 would someone do that?

Lucas Hnath's new play, Isaac's Eye, reimagines the contentious, plague-ravaged world Newton inhabited as it explores the ingenuity and ambition that drove the rural farm boy to become one of the greatest thinkers in modern science. Directed by David Muse. Featuring Kim Gilbert, Brad Koed, Bruce Nelson, and Gavin Witt. Followed by a post-show conversation with playwright Lucas Hnath.
