The inaugural Napier Theatre Company production
Equus (2021)

ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE 2021 SEASON OF EQUUS

It is with a heavy heart that Napier Theatre Company has decided to postpone the 2021 season of ‘Equus’.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the season of ‘Equus’ to September 24 – October 2, 2021.

Existing tickets will be honoured for the new show dates to be held at the MTG Century Theatre.

For current ticket holders who are unable to attend their rescheduled show, refunds are also available through Ticketek. You will receive an email from Ticketek regarding this.

Thank you for all the support shown by the Napier community and beyond.

“A GALVANIZING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER”
-TIME MAGAZINE

‘Equus’ is a psychological drama about Dr. Martin Dysart (Robert Hickey), a psychiatrist who has grown unhappy with his life, encouraged to take on a peculiar case by a magistrate, Hesther Salomon (Natalie Sandbrook). This involves Alan Strang (Samuel Draper), a reserved teenager who has been accused of brutally blinding six horses. Dysart slowly unravels Alan’s background, learning that he grew up in a strained household with a devoutly religious mother (Carol Williams) and an atheist father (Rob Dallas). But as Dysart begins to trace the roots of Alan’s problems, his own also begin to surface.

Book now at Ticketek.

‘Equus’ will be performed at the MTG Century Theatre, and is the inaugural Napier Theatre Company production.
