Quotes & Highlights

Equus won the 1975 Tony Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and was made into a film in 1977.


Written by Peter Shaffer

Directed by Erin Gilley

Based on actual events, this intense psychological thriller uses striking expressionistic storytelling techniques to explore the reasons why a 17-year-old boy blinded six stable horses. Journey through an adolescent’s dangerous obsession told through the eyes of his brilliant child psychiatrist. Delve into the darkest recesses of human existence – blind worship, endless desire and desperate violence.

Peter Shaffer’s modern classic is not intended for all audiences. Equus contains strong language, nudity and simulated violence and makes use of fog and actual hay.
