English Touring Theatre has paired up with The Theatre Royal at Stratford East to bring us a thrilling production of Equus which is as brilliantly acted as it is choreographed. I saw the 1973 production of Equus at the National Theatre and remembered the horses played by people with horse heads as being ground breaking in terms of movement.
With a book written by the British creators, Ben Adams singer of the boy band A1 and writer and actor Chris Wilkins, Eugenius! creates the kind of vibe I experienced in seeing The Rocky Horror Picture Show on stage at a former cinema in the King's Road, Chelsea in the early 1970s. It wasn't just the rock music, the gloriously over the top performances and costumes but the humour that was so delightful and I get the same feeling from Eugenius!.
