Book Equus Tickets at the Gielgud Theatre, London

About Equus

For the first time in over 30 years, EQUUS returns to the West End Stage and promises to be the hottest ticket of 2007.

Richard Griffiths, who this year won a Tony Award for his performance in The History Boys, stars alongside Daniel Radcliffe, best known for playing Harry Potter.

A psychiatrist, Martin Dysart, investigates the savage blinding of six horses with a metal spike in a stable in Hampshire, England. The atrocity was committed by an unassuming seventeen-year-old stable boy named Alan Strang, the only son of an opinionated but inwardly-timid father and a genteel, religious mother. As Dysart exposes the truths behind the boy's demons, he finds himself face-to-face with his own.

Peter Shaffer was inspired to write EQUUS when he heard of a crime involving a teenage boy's apparently senseless injury to horses. He set out to construct a fictional account of what might have caused the incident, without knowing any of the details of the crime. The play is essentially a post-modern detective story, with the psychiatrist trying to understand the cause of the boy's actions while wrestling with his own sense of purpose.
