Hook & Eye : story : science : history : myth

This is a company that will continue to push, in fun and creative ways, the limits of theater, expanding the barriers and creating new and compelling tales, and that is something to look forward to.

Theater Makers


Hook & Eye’s mission is to use the performer to build inspiring, inquisitive works of theater that encourage new perspectives on our collectively-held beliefs. What results are stories of history, myth, and science told in an unforgettable way by their creators.

Join us!

We founded Hook & Eye in 2010 to develop original works of theater, to explore material that interested us, and to provide a platform for performers’ voices in play-making. We are so proud that our shows fulfill that mission.

We meet new collaborators in our tri-annual PlayLabs, we provide youth education initiatives and foster local talent through our Spoolers program.

No matter how, we’d love to meet you and get you up on your feet making something! Join our Mailing List, and let’s play soon!

Thanks for checking us out!

Right Now


Echo & Narcissus

Still in development and inspired by the often-revised myth of Echo & Narcissus, Hook & Eye Theater is building a digitally enhanced sonic and theatrical re-telling of the doomed amorous duo. Told thru pre-recorded and live-mixed sonic scenes, and live action theatrical song, dance and scene work, the piece is part kitchen-table drama, and part space-age podcast. With minimal sets, a robust audio world, and text sliding back and forth from spaceship to earth, between truth and fiction, the myth we’re making will function as an veiled cultural mirror that shimmers with humor, and startles with distinctly familiar human moments.
