Award winning director Ned Bennett’s bold revival of Peter Shaffer’s iconic psychological thriller Equus is transferring to the West End this summer following a hugely successful tour earlier this year.
The English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East production will open at London’s Trafalgar Studios in July.
Inspired by a true story, Equus is a gripping and transfixing psychological thriller which sets out to explore the complex relationships between devotion, myth and sexuality.
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 violent act.
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.
The production stars Ethan Kai as Alan Strang and Zubin Varla as Martin Dysart.
Robert Fitch, Keith Gilmore, Norah Lopez Holden, Ira Mandela Siobhan will reprise their roles for the West End transfer with further casting to come.
This production of Equus was produced by English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East and is produced in the West End by Trafalgar Theatre Productions.
Equus runs at Trafalgar Studios from July 6 – September 7.
