Cast announced for Equus at Theatre Royal Stratford East

The cast for critically-acclaimed classic, psychological thriller Equus has been announced.

A collaboration between English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East, the Equus production will open at the Theatre Royal Stratford East (15 February –23 March), before touring across the UK.

Directed by Ned Bennett, the cast is:

Robert Finch (Frank Strang/Horse), Keith Gilmore (Harry Dalton/Nurse/Horse), Ethan Kai (Alan Strang), Syreeta Kumar (Dora Strang/Horse), Norah Lopez Holden (Jill Mason/Horse), Ruth Lass (Hester Salomon/Horse), Ira Mandela Siobhan (Young Horseman/Nugget) and Zubin Varla (Martin Dysart).

Inspired by a true story, Equus tells the dark tale of teenager Alan Strang, and his psychiatrist Dr Martin Dysart. When Dr Dysart is tasked with uncovering the motive of Alan’s violent acts against horses, he delves into Alan’s world of twisted spirituality, passion and sexuality, and begins to question his own sanity and motivations.

Equus will tour in the following venues:

  • Theatre Royal Stratford East (15 February –23 March)
  • Cambridge Arts Theatre (26 – 30 March)
  • Theatre Royal Bath (2 – 6 April)
  • Bristol Old Vic (16 – 20 April)
  • The Lowry (23 – 27 April)
  • Northern Stage (30 April – 4 May)
  • Yvonne Arnaud Theatre (7 – 11 May)

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
