EQUUS, by Peter Shaffer, recently enjoyed a successful revival on Broadway starring Daniel Radcliffe. It is one of those rare theatrical accomplishments: a critically acclaimed successthat is both emotionally gripping and intellectually challenging.
Alan Strang, (Michael Joseph) a 17 year old stable boy, has hideously blinded the horses in his charge. No one knows why. The outraged community wants his life but the presiding judge commits the boy to a hospital to be treated by Dr. Martin Dysart, (Bill Shuman) a child psychiatrist. Under huypnosis and drug tretment, Alan's shell begins to crack, revealing a young man torn between the ultra-religious piety of his Mother and the sardonic atheism of his Father. As the doctor forces Alan to reveal the bizarre reasons for his act and the innner turmoil that lead him to it, the doctor begins to question his own beliefs and the purposes of his chosen profession. "Brilliantly conceived, deeply symbolic, EQUUS is a superb physcholocial thriller and a turbulent journey into the far recesses of the mind." - Clive Barnes. "This is pure theatre. Equus is not to be missed. ....Dynamite!" - Newsweek. "Rivets' your attention."- Daily News
