By Lucas Hnath
directed by Vincent Carlson-Brown
August 14 - September 6, 2015
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 blends history and fantasy as he reimagines the contentious, plague-ravaged world Newton inhabited, exploring the dreams and longings that drove the rural farm boy to become one of the greatest thinkers in modern science.

"Urbanite Theatre has presented three productions in its first season, each challenging in some way. Each has left me thinking about the themes, and all of the acting has been on a very high level aided by great directing. The entire season can only be described as an auspicious launch."
