An exhilarating and disturbing production that always stays true to the thrust of Shaffer’s play...
Peter Shaffer’s 1973 play gets a potent, almost expressionist revival by director Ned Bennett, which is better than it deserves.
My over-riding feeling is that I’ve not seen a more richly achieved production at Trafalgar Studios since its conversion from the Whitehall in 2004. It’s perfect for that constricted main-stage, a boundless pleasure.
It’s a sweaty, sinewy, pulsing nightmare, a phantasmagoria of the dangers of repression and the potency of desire that grips and haunts the imagination.
Lean and hungry brilliance in Ned Bennett's production of Peter Shaffer.
Ned Bennett brilliantly directs the landmark 1973 play about a teenager who has blinded horses.
Bennett takes this carefully structured, well-written play and tries to make it fit with a visual aesthetic to which it’s not naturally suited – the effect is stark and striking, and really quite brilliant.
