Synopsis: 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 reimagines the contentious, plague-ravaged world Newton inhabited in Isaac’s Eye exploring the dreams and longings that drove the rural farm boy to become one of the greatest thinkers in modern science.
