"You will not see a better production of this masterpiece" The Observer
Following a critically acclaimed national tour with English Touring Theatre, and a record-breaking run at Theatre Royal Stratford East, Peter Shaffer’s award-winning play EQUUS transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season.
When teenager Alan Strang’s pathological fascination leads him to blind six horses in a Hampshire stable, psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart is tasked with uncovering the motive behind the boy’s actions. As Dysart delves into Alan’s world of twisted spirituality, passion and sexuality, he begins to question his own sanity and motivations in a world driven by consumerism.
Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer’s ‘mesmerising’ (Evening Standard) and transfixing psychological thriller is re-imagined by award-winning director Ned Bennett in this ‘dazzling new revival’ (Sunday Times) at London’s Trafalgar Studios for 9 weeks only.
Performances will take place at:
EQUUS was originally performed at Stratford East from Fri 15 Feb - Sat 23 Mar 2019.
