Peter Shaffer’s 1973 hit play Equus portrays a psychiatrist challenged with curing a young man’s pathological and quasi-religious fascination with horses. Inspired by a real-life crime that involved a 17-year-old who had blinded six horses in a small town near Suffolk, Shaffer produced a powerful play that has since captivated audiences and inspired a variety of creative productions.
Award-winning Palm Beach Dramaworks’ new production is directed by J. Barry Lewis and features Peter Simon Hilton as psychiatrist Martin Dysart and Stephen Maier as Alan Strang. This play contains nudity.
