You loved him in zany comedies like The Jerk and Roxanne, but Steve Martin is also one of our freshest and funniest playwrights. The Underpants is the great actor-comedian's laugh-out-loud satire of the bourgeois manners and customs of the early 20th century. When young Louise's underpants accidentally fall down at the king's big parade, it turns her into a celebrity of sorts and jeopardizes the civil service career of her stuffed shirt of a husband. Her 15 minutes of fame reaches its apex when she is recognized by two would-be lotharios who are boarding in the couple's spare room, and a cavalcade of coarse double entendres and burlesque-style physical comedy ensues.

I thought the play was amazingly strong on making you feel for the boy as well as his dad. I think the actor who played the therapist lacked a bit of caring for the boy but still emoted a strong feeling for of empathy for him. I would totally recommend the play.
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.
