An intense -- and often intensely funny -- battle of wits between the brash young Isaac Newton and his elder, the established scientist Robert Hooke, goes under the microscope in Isaac's Eye. Lucas Hnath, the hot New York playwright who won a 2016 Obie for his latest work Red Speedo, concocts an ingenious, meta-filled mix of contemporary language, real historical facts and an active imagination to explore the rivalry between the two intellectual heavyweights, which is set off by an argument over the properties of light. Custom Made Theatre stages this Bay Area premiere, which Time Out NY called "a kind of Rushmore plus calculus."
