Isaac's Eye at Ensemble Studio Theatre

Isaac's Eye (winner of the 2012 Whitfield Cook Prize) will premiere at Ensemble Studio Theatre, running January 30 - February 24.

"One experiment young Isaac Newton tried boggles the mind. To understand light and optics better, 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? Isaac’s Eye reimagines the contentious, plague-ravaged world Newton inhabited as it explores the dreams and longings that drove the rural farm boy to become one of the greatest thinkers in modern science."
