Theatre Preview: Equus, 18 – 23 February

23 Jan

EquusFollowing a record breaking run in London’s West End, Equus opens at the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh on Monday 18 February and runs until Saturday 23.

Psychiatrist Martin Dysart (Simon Callow) is brought the most challenging case of his career by magistrate Hester Saloman (Linda Thorson).

Alan Strang (Alfie Allen) seems like a normal seventeen year old. His life is routine and his family loving. However, Alan’s passion for horses and his first experience with a girl, stable-hand Jill (Laura O’Toole) has led him to behave in the most devastating way. Only Dysart seems able to grasp the answer to this psychological puzzle.

This is a fantastic opportunity to catch Simon Callow on stage, especially for any fans of his performance as Charles Dickens in Doctor Who a few years back. And I have to mention Linda Thorson’s role as Tara King in the cult TV series The Avengers – I realise she was awarded an honorary BAFTA Award in 2000 but the fans will never forget…

Equus is produced by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers, the Olivier and Tony award winning producers of Art, The Play What I Wrote and Heroes.
