EQUUS is a story of a young stable man in England in the mid 1970’s. Alan Strang played by Spencer T. Hamp has a love for the horses that morphs into something darker and after a horrible act of violence Martin Dysart played by Daniel Krell is the psychiatrist tasked with discovering why Alan changed. The most interesting part of EQUUS is that the horses are played by people dressed in metal hooves and helmets.
