Be sure to check out Kimerlee Curyl's photographs of the wild mustangs. Breathtaking.

I've seen Equus before but this is probably the most moving performance I've experienced. Very talented cast. Well staged.

Description

Equus, a young man’s unrelenting passion and devotion to that which modern society cannot comprehend or allow. A psychiatrist, searching for sanctuary and relief in ancient truths and myth. An act of despair and sacrifice – and the two are plummeted into the waking dream and living myth of horse.

Written in 1973,_ Equus_ was premiered in London at the Old Vic Theatre and then later at the National Theatre. Winner of the 1975 Tony Award for Best Play as well as the Drama Desk Award and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Equus has had several revivals on Broadway. The Morgan-Wixson is proud to present this show as the first production of our 2011-2012 season.

Written more than thirty years ago, Equus is full of metaphors for the struggle between the primitive and modern world, passion vs conformity, and man’s need to harness and control that which it cannot understand.

The creative team includes Madeleine Dahm (Director); Neda DeMayo, Horse Advisor (Return to Freedom American Wild Horse Sanctuary_)_*;* Bosco Flanagan (Lighting Designer); Ronda Dynice Brooks (Costume Designer); Thomas Brown (Set Designer); Kimerlee Curyl (Photography); and Kristy Pace (Producer).
