Equus by Peter Shaffer with subtitles in English


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

"Equus" is a therapeutic, dagger-like text, a mystic science of the metamorphoses of light, of gods turning into demons, of love growing into excession, of devils whispering under the gentle song of beauty...Mercilessly lighting the great dark field of the unconsciousness, the spectacle reveals secrets buried deep into the human soul, challenging society's norms. (Stayko Murdjev, The Director)

The play focuses on the clash between the internal, invisible living, and the social evaluation. Themes like medicine, love, religion are entwined. The main question is raised: "Is individuality an illness if it is against society's norms?"

The play won the "Askeer" award in 2017 for Best play and received 3 nominations in "Directing", "Theatre music" and "Best Supporting Female Role".

Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes
