The Vintage tries to present classic theater that may not have been seen, or to expose people to work that should be seen, Bond says, and by work, he does not mean body parts. Rather, hes making the case for why Equus, the story of a seventeen-year-old boy who stabs the eyes of six horses and the psychiatrist who explores the boy's descent into insanity, is a play that deserves local representation. Although its Tony Award for Best Play in 1975 and its lengthy Broadway run have guaranteed Equus's entry into the theatrical canon, it's not often performed around these parts and by parts, we do not mean body parts.
