"You will not see a better production of this masterpiece"

Observer

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.

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.
