The Naked Eye

By Jez Butterworth
Published in volume Jez Butterworth Plays: One

A family gears up to catch Halley's Comet as it passes through the night sky, knowing that it won't be back for another hundred years.

Jez Butterworth's short monologue The Naked Eye was first performed as part of the 10 x 25 season at Atlantic Stage 2, the Atlantic Theater, New York, in June 2011.

'The comet was up there, soaring past and we were going to miss it.'
