About the show

Hook & Eye Theater presents the world premiere of an absurdist comedy inspired by the mind and myth of architect and designer Buckminster Fuller. More…

In the fall of 1969, an eccentric professor gathers a team of offbeat academics to play a game with one goal: make the world work for all humanity.

As the clock ticks, the lines blur between the game and the real world and we wonder if we've detached from reality altogether.

"Hook & Eye company wizz-writer Gavin Broady and director Chad Lindsey met the Herculean feat of simulating consciousness and the speed of thought without befuddling the plot or leaving the audience as adrift as when you try to tell your bedfellow about a dream. All this, no less, while staging a...
