Description

The critically acclaimed production from English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East of 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.

Equus will feature scenes with nudity, strong language and adult themes and is unsuitable for audience members under 16 years of age. There will be strobe lighting during the production for 7 seconds. The running time of Equus is approximately 2 hours and 35 minutes, including an interval.
