Psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart, is confronted with a boy named Alan Strang 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 into a complex and disturbingly dramatic confrontation.

*Equus is for mature audiences only*
