Gotta say that this was an amazing experience. The play was superb and i was so moved… i don’t know whether ‘moved’ is the right word but basically it made me talk about the play the whole night until i got home… and then i started thinking about it.

Lights were so fucking beautiful… i have never ever seen something like it.. hats off to the lights crew!

The only thing i didn’t get was, why the horses walked creepily before their scene… maybe it was me but because of that i quivered a little… but still i was up on my seat.

Sometimes i didn’t even realize Mihiri was next to me. add to that she was also wearing a very short dress… hehe….

Bravo Bravo Bravo… Equus!!!

thanks ruvin. the lighting was designed by thushan dias, who is an absolute perfectionist. we moved into the theatre on the 8th and he spent a lot of time working on getting it exactly right.

the horses are supposed to move a little ritualistically – it’s called for in the script. the intended effect is supposed to unsettle you a bit.

so glad you were moved by it, which word is fine by me dude : )
