EQUUS by the Rude Mechanicals

Come to the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater at the University of Michigan to witness UAC's Rude Mechanicals put on a modern rendition of Peter Shaffer's play, Equus (mature audiences only).

In Equus, Dr. Martin Dysart, a psychiatrist, is confronted with Alan Strang, a boy who has blinded six horses in a violent fit of passion. This very passion is as foreign to Dysart as the act itself. To the boy's parents it is a hideous mystery; Alan has always adored horses. To Dysart it is a psychological puzzle that leads both doctor and patient to a complex and disturbingly dramatic confrontation.

Friday, November 3rd at 7:00 PM.

Saturday, November 4th at 7:00 PM.

Sunday, November 5th at 2:00 PM.
