By Peter Shaffer
Directed by Lennie Dean
Dr. 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. Part detective story and part psychological thriller, this international success reached new acclaim on Broadway when revived in 2008, starring Daniel Radcliffe, and now comes to the 6th Street Playhouse Studio Theatre.
