Oldham born Norah Lopez Holden will be starring in Ned Bennett’s bold new production of Peter Shaffer’s critically-acclaimed classic, psychological thriller ‘Equus’ which comes to The Lowry Tue 23 – Sat 27 April.
‘Equus’ is a co-production between English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East. The production explores the complex relationships between devotion, myth and sexuality.
Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer’s gripping and transfixing psychological thriller is re-imagined by award-winning theatre director Ned Bennett in this major new revival for 2019.
When teenager Alan Strang’s pathological fascination leads him to blind six horses in a Hampshire stable, psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart is tasked with uncovering the motive behind the boy’s violent act. As Dysart delves into Alan’s world of twisted spiritualty, passion and sexuality, he begins to question his own sanity and motivations in a world driven by consumerism.
