Play description

Peter Shaffer was inspired to write EQUUS when he heard of a crime involving a 17-year-old who blinded six horses in a small town in Suffolk. He set out to construct a fictional account of what might have caused the incident, without knowing any of the details of the crime. The play’s action is something of a detective story, involving the attempts of child psychiatrist Dr Martin Dysart to understand the cause of young Alan Strang’s actions while wrestling with his own sense of purpose.
