The Players’ Ring
105 Marcy St.
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

March 2 – 18, 2018
By Peter Shaffer
Presented by Back Alley Productions

A psychiatrist, Dr. Martin Dysart, is confronted with a boy named Alan Strang 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.

In 2008, Back Alley Productions partnered with Rolling Die Productions to bring to life Peter Shaffer’s masterpiece Equus, and in March of 2018, they endeavor to bring it back to the Player’s Ring stage in celebration of their 10 year anniversary.

Back Alley Productions has been creating thought provoking, quality, theater for the New Hampshire Seacoast since 2008. Its founders, Joi Smith and Danica Carlson, share a passion for highlighting the amazing talents in the community and bringing to life the beautiful stories of the human experience for their audiences to enjoy.

Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sundays at 3 p.m.
