Equus by Peter Shaffer
This highly praised production of Peter Shaffer’s Equus was directed by Mark Radvan.Critic Barbara Hebden wrote “La Boite has crowned an exciting six months of 1989 with a powerful and polished production of Shaffer’s bleak and deeply moving exploration of the inner self” [i]and John Harris said “This is, in fact, probably one of the best productions of Equus you will see”.[ii]
Sue Gough, in commenting on the outstanding performance of Scott Witt in the lead role of Alan Stang, wrote in The Bulletin July 18, 1989:
Mark Radvan has an extraordinary ability to locate the talent latent in young actors and turn it into something superlative. Time and again he has conjured professional performances out of Brisbane drama students. Now, with his direction of Peter Shaffer’s Equus at La Boite, he can claim some overdue recognition from the public.
