Repertory Philippines (Rep) will hold open auditions for their new production of Peter Shaffer's psychodrama Equus on Monday, March 8, 2010, 5-9 pm (for major and minor roles) and on Friday, March 12, 2010, 6-9 pm (for the role of Alan Strang) at the Rep office, C2-A, Building C, 2316, Karrivin Plaza, Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City.
In Equus, Dr. Martin Dysart attempts to treat Alan Strang, a teenage boy who has blinded six horses in a violent fit of passion. Dysart believes that Strang has a case of pathological religious and sexual fascination with horses, which leads the psychiatrist and his patient to a complex and disturbingly dramatic confrontation.
