Equus by Oscar award-winning Peter Shaffer opened at the National Theatre in 1973 and has since been performed worldwide, including the 2007 production starring Richard Griffiths and Daniela Radcliffe. Now starring Simon Callow and introducing Alfie Allen, the production comes to Richmond Theatre.

Psychiatrist Martin Dysart is brought the most testing case of his career by magistrate Hester Saloman (Linda Thorson). He has the task of trying to cure seventeen year old Alan Strang whose obsession with horses and an encounter with stablehand Jill (Laura O'Toole) has led him to behave in the most dangerous way.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
