About Equus

The critically acclaimed production from English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East of Peter Shaffer’s award-winning play, Equus, transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season.

When teenager, Alan Strang’s, pathological fascination leads him to blind six horses in a Hampshire stable, psychiatrist, Dr. Martin Dysart, is tasked with uncovering the motive behind the boy’s actions. As Dysart delves into Alan’s world of twisted spirituality, passion and sexuality, he begins to question his own sanity and motivations in a world driven by consumerism.

Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer’s "mesmerising" (Evening Standard) and transfixing psychological thriller is re-imagined by award-winning director, Ned Bennett, in this "dazzling new revival" (Sunday Times) at London’s Trafalgar Studios for nine weeks only.

PLEASE NOTE: 14+ (contains themes of violence, discussions of mental health, scenes of sexual violence, full frontal nudity and strong language). Performance also contains strobe lighting, smoking on stage and haze. Running time: 2 hours 35 minutes (including interval).
