Equus

by Peter Shaffer, directed by Troy Nickerson

April 3-26, 2015

Martin Dysart, a psychiatrist, investigates the savage blinding of six horses at a stable in Hampshire, England. For no apparent reason, an unassuming seventeen-year-old stable boy named Alan Strang, the only son of a timid father and a refined, religious mother, committed the atrocity with a hoof pick. As Dysart exposes the truths behind the boy’s demons, he finds himself confronting his own insecurities about religion, sexuality and his relationsihp with his wife.
