Equus - logoEquus
by Peter Shaffer

Mar. 17 - Apr. 2, 1988
Directed by Richard Lemin

With symbolic use of masks and staging, EQUUS depicts the story of a deranged youth who blinds six horses with a spike. Through a psychiatrist's analysis of the events, Shaffer creates a chilling portrait of how materialism and convenience have killed our capacity for worship and passion and, consequently, our capacity for pain.

The play explores questions about what is Normal and to what extent society will go to normalize people - or to lock them away somewhere if they can't be normalized.
