As the boy who has explosively blinded six horses, Alan Strang is met by psychologist Dr. Martin Dysart, who seeks not only to understand the act itself, but the passion behind it. As he explores, he must surface many mysterious twists and turns inside Alan’s head -the contrasting religious and secular influence of his parents, his desire to understand his own sexuality, his love for everything equine. However, in the ultimate confrontation, Dysart faces his own passionate pitfall head on. Boasting a magnificent slate of actors and highly original design, Gallery’s Equus is guaranteed to have audiences on the edge of their seat until the last second.
