Reviews for Glass-eye Theatre Company

Iris’ every day is a haze of grey….

It seems just like any other morning for Iris. But when her glasses break in a seemingly innocent accident, she finds herself propelled on a strange journey through the city she thought she knew.

Before her very eyes, the world starts coming to life in bewildering and thrilling new ways. The oddities of her co-workers in the library, the prophetic newspaper vendor she passes every day, even the ducks in her local pond — Iris is discovering that the extraordinary is all around her and that, most surprisingly of all, it lies within her.
