The Student

“A tense and profound performance, beautifully executed, Emily Aboud’s Equus is a haunting success.”

★★★★

Broadway Baby

Much of the atmosphere in director Emily Aboud’s excellent production is down to her focused, symbolic use of colour – ranging from ultra-violet to blood red – against an otherwise blacked out Bedlam stage.

★★★★

“There is real passion and depth here. And Aboud has the character of Strang stripped naked long before Clark has to take his clothes off in the nude scene (...) Indeed, Aboud judges this scene superbly well. Chloe Allen plays Jill, the girl who works at the stable and falls for Alan, with just the right level of naive charm to ensure the normality of their encounter. So that when the moment comes, their nudity is not a distraction from the scene’s narrative role.
