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.

Description

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.

Featuring: Laura Jane Bailey*, Jeff Garett, Mike Newman*, Michael Shipley*, Bobby Conte Thornton, and Lili Weckler

Stage Manager: Bonnie Robertson Set Designer: Nick A. Olivero Lighting Designer: Krista Smith Sound Designer: Marc Blinder Costume Designer: Amy Knight

Choreographer/Movement Coach: Allison Combs Dramaturg: Michael Moerman Text Coach: Peter Matthews
