An explosive play that took critics and audiences by storm, EQUUS is Peter Shaffer's exploration of the way modern society has destroyed our ability to feel passion. Alan Strang is a disturbed youth whose dangerous obsession with horses leads him to commit an unspeakable act of violence. As psychiatrist Martin Dysart struggles to understand the motivation for Alan's brutality, he is increasingly drawn into Alan's web and eventually forced to question his own sanity. EQUUS is a timeless classic and a cornerstone of contemporary drama that delves into the darkest recesses of human existence. Tickets are $10 Box Office: (847)665-9221 **This play contains mature themes and is not recommended for children.
