Experience English Touring Theatre's transfixing interpretation of Equus with two tickets at just £5 each across performances from Wed 17 – Sat 20 Apr.


Inspired by a true story, Equus explores the complex relationships between devotion, myth and sexuality.

When teenager Alan Strang’s pathological fascination leads him to blind six horses in a Hampshire stable, psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart is tasked with uncovering the motive behind the boy’s violent act. As Dysart delves into Alan’s world of twisted spirituality, passion and sexuality, he begins to question his own sanity and motivations in a world driven by consumerism.

Following two consecutive sell-outs with The Weir and A Streetcar Named Desire, English Touring Theatre return to Bristol Old Vic with Ned Bennett’s bold new production of Peter Shaffer’s critically-acclaimed psychological thriller.
