A recipient of the Tony Award and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play, the riveting piece of theater is at once relevant and mesmerizing in its storyline and theme.
Psychiatrist Martin Dysart meets his most challenging case in a boy of 17 named Alan Strang who has been charged with the crime of blinding six horses by gouging out their eyes. As the play unravels, one realizes that beneath the surface of the crime lies another dimension of the human psyche more terrifying than what it seems to be.
Red Concepcion and newcomer Marco Manalac alternate as Alan. At the helm as director is multi-awarded actor Audie Gemora.
