Equus on Broadway
“One weekend I was driving with a friend through the bleak countryside. We passed a stable. Suddenly he was reminded by it of an alarming crime, which he had heard about recently at a dinner party in London. He knew only one horrible detail, and his complete mention of it could barely have lasted a minute – but it was enough to arouse in me an intense fascination...” - Peter Shaffer
EQUUS by the Oscar Award winning Peter Shaffer opened at the National Theatre in 1973 and became a worldwide sensation. It went on to win the Tony Award for Best Play for its Broadway production, and was eventually made into a film starring Richard Burton. In 2007, a new production opened in London starring Richard Griffiths and Daniel Radcliffe, and it became one of the biggest hits ever seen in the West End.
“Peter Shaffer’s EQUUS is without doubt one of the greatest English post-war plays. As a work of art, it is magnificent. Rarely does contemporary drama probe so deep - AN ELECTRIFYING EVENING OF THEATRE” - The Sunday Times, 4 March 2007

Equus is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe makes his Broadway debut as Alan Strang, a seemingly normal, obedient 17 year old with a passion for horses. Then one night he blinds six of the beasts with a hoof pick. What drove him to it? His life seems routine, his family loving, his pursuits harmless. And yet he has been placed under psychiatric surveillance—an unresponsive patient who is woken each night by terrible nightmares. Only psychiatrist Martin Dysart seems able to grasp the answer to this psychological puzzle.
Thea Sharrock (Direction)
Peter Shaffer (Playwright)
