Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play from the celebrated creator of Amadeus

An explosive play that took critics and audiences by storm and became a world-wide sensation upon its release, Equus is Peter Shaffer's exploration of the way modern society has destroyed our ability to feel passion. Alan Strang is a disturbed youth whose dangerous obsession with horses leads him to commit an unspeakable act of violence. As psychiatrist Martin Dysart struggles to understand the motivation for Alan's brutality, he is increasingly drawn into Alan's web and eventually forced to question his own sanity and purpose. Equus is a timeless classic and a cornerstone of contemporary drama that delves into the darkest recesses of human existence.

"…without doubt one of the greatest English post-war plays. As a work of art, it is magnificent. Rarely does contemporary drama probe so deep - an electrifying evening of theatre." The Sunday Times

"...blazes with theatrical enthralling play." The New York Times

"...Equus is an exciting, unusual theatrical event. Peter Shaffer creates an exciting spectacle." The Guardian

"...Peter Shaffer is one of the most theatrical of all living playwrights. He is genuinely visual, arguing through his images, creating pictures on stage so powerful that you leave the theatre imprinted with them and only realise later how tendentious they are." The Observer

Not suitable for under 16 years of age.
