Theatre: EQUUS


Gonna watch Equus by Peter Shaffer on the last day of a week-long show at Theatre Royal on March 29. Equus has created controversial for the first time in 30 years of the play when it made a comeback in the West End last year, when Daniel Radcliffe, an innocent of Harry Porter took a lead role of the play. I did not manage to watch it last year since all the shows were sold out. Daniel has to appear naked onstage and created uproar amongst the parents who said the youngster will bring bad image to Harry Porter. "Equus" is the story of a young man, Alan Strang who blinds six horses in an erotic ritual, and his subsequent psychiatric treatment by Martin Dysart, who try to cure the boy. The play has been given 5-STAR by The Sunday Times.



However, the lead actor has taken over by Alfie Allen, the latest rising star of the Allen family and brother of Lily, most recently seen in the blockbuster film Atonement, and the greatest stage actor Simon Callow will take the centre stage.
