After producing the celebrated, highly successful, and fully improvised movie night AS YOU WANT IT in January 2023 (to be revived on October 27th and 28th @ DIE MOTTE!) the University Players are back – now with a classic of modern theatre:
By Peter Shaffer, directed by Henny Fleischmann
17-year-old Alan Strang blinds six horses in a fit of religious fervour – or madness? Love? He finds himself in therapy with psychiatrist Dr. Dysart, who is wrestling with his own sense of purpose in the “adjustment business.” Dysart’s attempts to develop a doctor-patient relationship and understand Alan’s actions raise profound questions of sanctity, sexuality, and self. Are we free to choose what makes our lives worth living? Why do we love what we love? What does it mean to be part of the herd?
Based on a true story, Peter Shaffer’s modern classic explores the complex relationships between disease and divinity, devotion and disorder. With elements of physical theatre, choreography and music, this production creates an intense and vibrant live experience. Join the ride through the weeds of culture and condition in this thought-provoking, physical, and energetic performance!
