Stage Troupe's final mainstage of the semester! A disillusioned psychiatrist is presented with a 17 year old boy who blinded six horses one night. Through therapy and flashbacks, we discover the cognitive makeup of both these men. What caused the boy to commit this crime is a disturbing blend of religious and sexual fervor, with roots in many different moments and people. Peter Shaffer’s classic play takes us beyond the issues of doctor and patient and into our own societal and philosophical perceptions of belief, passion, and normality. These therapy sessions will end up confronting the personal demons of all the players in this disturbed, young boy’s tale.
