Last presented on a South African stage in 1985 when Pieter Toerien presented a production of Peter Shaffer’s play EQUUS directed by Rex Garner, assisted by Robert Whitehead, starring Joanna Palmer as Hesther Salomon, Darryl Forbes as Dr Martin Dysart and Jeremy Crutchley as Alan Strang.
The production opened at the Alhambra Theatre in #Johannesburg on August 10th and also starred Shelagh Holliday, Norman Coombes, Merle Lifson, Christine Le Brocq, Drummond Marais, Michael Blaise and Paul Stuart Buckby
It garnered, like the piece has all over the world, high praise from critics and audiences alike. A gripping, dark tale that delves into the darkest recesses of human existence. EQUUS is a timeless classic and has become a cornerstone of contemporary drama.
The new production of Equus, directed by Fred Abrahamse and starring Graham Hopkins and Sven Ruygrok runs at Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theater in Johannesburg from 26 April – 26 May
Designs by Marcel Meyer, original compositions by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder, movement by Marc Goldberg with Cassandra-Tendai Mapanda, Andrew Roux, Maggie Gericke, Monique Basson, Len-Barry Simons and Marc Goldberg.
