Equus - 2019 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More

£12+

Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer's gripping psychological thriller, EQUUS, explores 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. 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.

Award winning director Ned Bennett brings Peter Shaffer's psychological thriller Equus to the stage in a bold new production of the critically-acclaimed classic.
