Dr. Martin Dysart, a dissatisfied and disaffected psychiatrist, is faced with a unique case when a young man, Alan Strang, is brought to him for treatment. Alan, a passionate and obsessive horse lover, has blinded six horses, to the horror and surprise of his family. In his efforts to coax Alan out of his shell and treat him, Dr. Dysart begins to unravel the complex psychological puzzle of Alan's obsessions.

Underneath Alan's complacent manner, Dr. Dysart discovers a fervent, passionate, almost religious power that has both the power to destroy Alan, and perhaps, to save the doctor himself. English playwright Sir Peter Shaffer's international hit is a dazzling, complex, and thrilling look at passion, sex, religion and sanity. 

             “……packs a terrific theatrical punch…..” The Daily Telegraph

“…..still has the air of an exciting, unusual theatrical event.” The Guardian
