New Theatre presents Equus by Peter Shaffer

Through April 4th, 2010.

altEquus by Tony winning playwright Peter Shaffer comes to New Theatre after its successful 2008 Broadway run. It is the primal and electric story about a 17 year old stable boy and the psychiatrist who seeks to understand the sexual and religious mystery which led the boy to commit an unspeakable and unbelievable act. Mr. Shaffer was inspired to write Equus after hearing about a crime involving a 17-year-old and set out to construct a fictional account of what might have caused the incident, without knowing any of the details of the crime.

Equus is directed by Artistic Director, Ricky J. Martinez, and performed by a stellar cast lead by New Theatre veteran James Samuel Randolph as Martin Dysart and making his New Theatre debut, David Hemphill in the role of Alan Strang. Joining them as part of the ensemble are New Theatre veterans, Steven Chambers, Ricardo Rodriguez, Vanessa Thompson, Laura Turnbull and making their New Theatre debuts, Linda Bernhard, Josh Foldy, and Melissa Smith. Returning to New Theatre are Production Stage Manager Dana Hesch, Costume Designer K. Blair Brown, Lighting Designer David Hernandez, Sound Designer Ozzie Quintana and Scenic Designer Nicole Quintana.

WARNING: The play contains cigarette smoking, adult content and nudity.
