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? Lucas Hnaths brilliant new play, Isaacs 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.
