4.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Play, May 30 2000
This review is from: Equus (Paperback)
Equus is a powerful play dealing with a myriad of issues including psychiatry, love, crime, insanity and family in a compact and readable manner. Even though the play deals with so many complex issues, it is eminently readable, one might even say a page-turner. A final note of interest: the playwright tells us in his introduction that the plot of the play came from a newspaper headline he saw describing a particularly bizarre crime. Although the author never learned anything more about the crime, the headline sparked his imagination. The play, therefore, also serves as an intriguing study of the playwright's own imagination.
