Long Beach Playhouse
Andrew Vonderschmitt, artistic dir.
Casting "Equus," in which Dr. Martin Dysart, a psychiatrist, is confronted with Alan Strang - a boy who has blinded six horses in a violent fit of passion. This very passion is as foreign to Dysart as the act itself. To the boy's parents it is a hideous mystery; Alan has always adored horses. To Dysart, it is a psychological puzzle that leads both doctor and patient to a complex and disturbingly dramatic confrontation.
