Widely considered one of the great plays of our time, Equus ran for more than 1,200 performances on Broadway and won the Tony for Best Play. Written by Peter Shaffer -- best known for penning the Tony-winning play (and later Oscar-winning movie) Amadeus -- Equus examines the complex relationship between Alan Strang, a troubled teenager, and Martin Dysart, the brilliant psychiatrist determined to treat him. But "treatment" becomes tricky as Dysart realizes that probing the boy's mind to determine what drove him to blind six horses with a metal spike brings him face-to-face with his own scarred psyche. See this modern masterpiece at Denver's Avenue Theater.
