Montana State University School of Film and Photography presents Equus - to be held at the Black Box Theatre for the first three weekends (Friday & Saturdays) of April at 7:30pm.
An explosive play that took critics and audiences by storm and became a world-wide sensation upon its release, Equus follows psychiatrist Martin Dysart's attempts to treat Alan Strang, a disturbed 17-year-old stable boy who has a threatening obsession with horses that led him to commit unspeakable acts of violence. As Dysart struggles to understand the motivations for the boy's demons, he finds himself face-to-face with his own.
Written by Peter Shaffer, the much honored English playwright, Equus is his exploration of the way modern society has destroyed the ability to feel passion.
"...blazes with theatrical life...and enthralling play..." - New York Times
"...without a doubt one of the greatest English post-war plays. As a work of art, it is magnificient. Rarely does contemporary drama probe so deep - an electrifying evening of theatre." - The Sunday Times
For mature audiences only. Doors open at 7pm.
Ticket prices are $10 Students, $12 Seniors and $14 General.
Tickets can be purchased at 1st Interstate Bank at the SUB, downtown at Cactus Tapes and Records, and at the Box Office the night of each showing.
