Equus to run at Trafalgar Studios this July!

Ned Bennett's mesmerising reimagining of Equus is set to transfer from the Theatre Royal Stratford East to Trafalgar Studios this July, it has been confirmed. The brief West End run for Equus is booking until 7 September 2019.  

Ethan Kai and Zubin Varla, who starred as Alan Strang and Martin Dysart in the Stratford East run, are set to reprise their roles alongside returning cast members Ira Mandela Siobhan as Young Horseman/Nugget, Norah Lopez Holden as Jill Mason/Horse, Keith Gilmore as Harry Dalton/Nurse/Horse, Ruth Lass as Hester Salomon/Horse, and Syreeta Kumar as Dora Strang/Horse.

Equus plot summary

Inspired by true events, Peter Shaffer's Equus is a transfixing, edge-of-your-seat thriller that follows teenager Alan Strang and his bizarre pathological desires. When Alan uses a steel spike to mercilessly blind six horses in a Hampshire stable out of his own fascination, Dr. Martin Dysart is assigned with Alan's unusual case. As Dr. Dysart attempts to solve the puzzle to the boy's indiscernible motives for the deed, he soon finds himself enveloped in a world of twisted erotica, passion, and etherealism. Could Dr. Dysart be going insane himself?

About Ned Bennett's version of Equus

Ned Bennett's Stratford East production is a far more stripped down version when compared to the original 1973 Old Vic Theatre production. However, its minimalist approach still managed to captivate East London audiences this year with many praising the show's brilliantly executed stage lighting and effects, which strategically work to highlight the drama's high tension. The thrilling play will leave West End audiences trembling in shock and excitement.
