Equus

Tue 23 April - Sat 27

English Touring Theatre present

Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer’s gripping psychological thriller, Equus, explores the complex relationships between devotion, myth and sexuality. This gripping new production is directed by the award-winning Ned Bennett.

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 violent act. 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.

Equus is a co-production between UK Theatre Award winners English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East.
