Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer’s rarely performance masterpiece, Equus, explores the complex relationship between devotion, myth and sexuality. This gripping new production is directed by the award-winning Ned Bennett.

When teenager Alan Strang’s pathological fascination leads him to blind six horses, psychiatrist Dr Martin Dysart is tasked with uncovering the motive. 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.

This exhilarating production reimagines the play for 2019 creating a unique sensory treat that you have never seen before. If you think you know Equus, you’re in for some surprises.

Equus is a co-production between UK Theatre Award winners English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Equus comes to Northern Stage from 30 Apr - 4 May.
