'What appears in this book is a description of the first production of Equus at the National Theatre in July 1973' (text). Perhaps Shaffer's most famous work, the text follows Martin Dysart, a psychiatrist, who is confronted with a young man who has a pathological fascination with horses. The first National Theatre production featured Alec McCowen and Peter Firth, with the latest production notably starring Daniel Radcliffe.
