In a Hampshire stable, disturbed youth Alan Strang commits an unspeakable act of violence. He is sent to psychiatrist Dr Martin Dysart, who begins to explore the boy’s past in an attempt to understand his motives. It proves to be the most challenging case of his career as he struggles to interpret the motivation for Alan’s brutality. As the truth gradually emerges, the psychiatrist finds that, paradoxically, his own life is in the witness box

Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer’s passionate and gripping psychological thriller is a timeless classic and a cornerstone of contemporary drama. The play was famously revived for the West End in 2007 with Daniel Radcliffe and the late Richard Griffiths playing the lead roles.
