Trafalgar Studios 6th July – 7th September
Award winning director Ned Bennett’s bold revival of Peter Shaffer’s iconic psychological thriller Equus is transfering to the West End this summer, following its hugely successful tour.
The five star production received unprecedented critical acclaim when it opened, with The Sunday Times describing it as “a dazzling revival” and The Observer professing “You will not see a better production of this masterpiece”.
Inspired by a true story, Equus is a gripping and transfixing psychological thriller which sets out to explore the complex relationships between devotion, myth and sexuality. 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.
