Event Details

There’s a law named after me!

Isaac Newton is one of the towering geniuses of western science: apples falling from trees, the laws of motion, the calculus. He was also a bit on the eccentric side: he stuck a needle into his tear duct to try to determine how the eye sees light, for example. Playwright Lucas Hnath takes this fact and runs with it, creating a play in which the ambitious young Newton seeks a mentor in Robert Hooke of the Royal Society. Hnath plays somewhat fast and loose with history (and lets us know he’s doing so from the outset), but still raises important questions about the search for knowledge. The story is historical, the language is contemporary, and the play should both delight audiences and give them a lot to think about.
