New Zealand Premiere

Isaac Newton’s childlike, kaleidoscope mind is the platform for a quirky, contemporary and distinctly original theatrical experience.

Isaac’s Eye re-imagines the contentious, plague-ravaged world in which the young Isaac Newton and established scientist Robert Hooke are a Mozart and Salieri of science wrangling over the physics of light. Over the course of their dispute, Newton risks blinding himself by conducting optical experiments on his own eye to prove to Hooke that his theory is right and that he is worthy of admission to The Royal Society.

Far from a costume drama, Isaac's Eye is original in its presentation and contemporary in its tone. With a stunning set imagined and created by cartoonist Tom Scott, Isaac’s Eye occupies its own time and space as it explores the dreams and longings that drove the rural farm boy Isaac Newton to become one of the greatest thinkers in modern science.

"A quirky sendup of fusty historical dramas... funky, stylized, but distinctly contemporary. Isaac's Eye wins a whole mess of points for originality." - The New York Times
