Equus by Peter Shaffer
Equus tells the story of a psychiatrist who attempts to treat a young man who has a pathological fascination with horses: Alan, 17, is obsessed with horses, to the point of worshipping them religiously. Alan’s father, an atheist, blames religion for his son’s problems, while his mother says that Alan is his own person, and is to blame himself. Dysart, a psychiatrist assigned to help Alan, finds that Alan’s obsession with horses is rooted in a childhood experience with a horse, where he felt powerful and free by controlling a horse by riding one. Disarm has to navigate the complex maze of actions, thoughts, and emotions that led Alan to attack and blind six horses in a stable.

Evita, Lyrics by Tim Rice, Book by Andrew Lloyd Weber
Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron ‘saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military’ was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century.

A Perfect Wedding by Charles Mee
The play is an absurd comedy wrapped in a poetic farrago about love and commitment: A series of supposedly perfect weddings explode into a summertime fantasia, exploring the nature of love in all its tangled combinations. It is like A Midsummer Night’s Dream with a dose of contemporary anxiety.
