'Equus' slated for FC

Fullerton College Hornet  - - Friday, May 8th, 1981

Peter Shaffer's award-winning play, Equus, is scheduled to appear May 21 through 24 and May 26 through 31 at 8 p.m. in the Fullerton College Campus Theater.

Equus, directed by Gary Krinke of the FC Theater Department, is the dramatization of an attempt by a psychiatrist who must come to terms with his therapeutic and human relationship with one of his patients.

The play deals with Martin Dysart (Martin Goslins of Downey) as the psychiatrist who is confronted by Alan Strang (Cray Wilcox of Yorba Linda), a young boy who has blinded six horses.

To the owner of the horses, the horror is simple: he was unlucky enough to employ a "looney." To Alan's parents, the blinded horses are a hideous mystery. To the psychiatrist, Dysart, it is a psychological puzzle to be unraveled.

Dora Strang (Barbara Pierce of Brea), Alan's over-indulgent mother and Frank Strang (Robert Sessions of Fullerton), the sensitive and touchy father, maintain their love for their son throughout. The problem, though, is far more complex and disturbing than parents or doctor imagined. The answer lies hidden until the- closing curtain of Equus.

Other- cast members include: Leslie Young, of Brea,. as. Hester Salomon; Jayme Rose, of Anaheim, as Jill Morgan; Sam Campbell, of Brea, as Harry Dalton; Louise' Smith, of Fullerton, as Nurse Bolin; Christopher Servin, of Orange, as the Horseman; and Kenny Lyng, of Fullerton, as Nugget.

Tickets are on sale at 'the Campus Theater. Price. is $2.50 for general admission and $1.50 for students.and senior citizens. Fullerton College Associated Students card-holders will be admitted free.
