What does it take to be the best, to be remembered forever? ISAAC'S EYE is a hilarious and poignant exploration of love, greatness and the nature of Truth that playfully combines contemporary language, historical fact, deadpan humor, and scientific inquiry. 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. Hnath pits two ruthless thinkers against one another in a battle of wits while playing a thrilling game of meta-theatrics, calling attention to the way we establish truth onstage through deception and imagination.
