Six women. Two decades. One mountain.

A vibrant new play about the lives of six women across generations. Set in and around a New Deal-era women’s work camp on New York’s Bear Mountain, She-She-She is inspired by the friendship between Eleanor Roosevelt and Pauli Murray that ignited there. Hook & Eye Theater’s fourth collaborative piece weaves stories from that era with the narratives of three contemporary women still in search of agency, healing, and a little wilderness magic. She-She-She premiers May 2018 at The Mark O'Donnell Theater at Brooklyn's Actors Fund Arts Center.

Hook & Eye is an ensemble company of theater-makers, actors, dancers, musicians and artists based in Brooklyn, NY. We build totally new theatrical pieces full of joyful athleticism, soul, and song. Every year or so, a new play is brought to life.


We teach play-writing at New York's Professional Performing Arts School . . . 



. . . and offer 100% free PlayLabs where new ideas are brought forward, built, and developed . . . and we meet with and foster our artistic community.


We start with a snag,

an idea that hooks our collective interest.  Using improvisation, discussion, and research, we tug at the thread until we've found

a story to unravel.

Working with our writers, musicians and artists to focus our vision, we knit the moments together, add layers, and get the story ready for fastening

with our audience.

While the timeline of each project varies, it generally takes over a year to conceive, build, and produce each new work.
