The phrase “modern classic” is sometimes overused, but in this case it is surely most appropriate. Peter Shaffer’s haunting, disturbing, visually unforgettable play “Equus” is known as one of the finest plays of the 20th Century.


Based on a story he was told in the car by a friend of an incident in some stables near to where they were driving, Shaffer attempts to enter the mind of a 17 year old boy who has been sent to a psychiatrist after being convicted of blinding 6 horses with a hoof pick. The psychiatrist has to overcome the boy’s anger and resentment, and whilst trying to get to the truth begins to question the validity of his reasons and his own life.
