Annie has a singular desire: to restore the soul of her twin brother. With blueprints for a synthetic soul in hand, the brilliant yet tense daughter of a scientist and a watchmaker turns to a local glassblower to create the central, delicate piece. When progress falters as she confides in her new companion, Annie begins to feel that time may be running out. Inspired by novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story The Artist of the Beautiful and directed by Katharine Noon, this haunting new production from the Ghost Road Company explores the delicate intersection of genius and madness.

I was disappointed with Eternal Thou. I was expecting a more substantive exploration of the topic of the internet's impact on human relationships. The play started well with a look at the origins of the internet, but then quickly devolved into a series of vague and nonsensical vignettes. The staging of the play had some interesting technological components to it, but in the end I could not find a coherent message. I was hoping for much more, since I am an avid technology enthusiast.
