In April and May 2009, volunteer actors of Equus Productions bring Joe Orton's controversial 1964 comedy, "Entertaining Mr Sloane" to English speaking Hungarians in Budapest. Directed by Rhett Stevens, the black comedy with a difficult and challenging text will be provocative in more than one sense of the word, yet the audience is called upon to come judge for themselves how the piece ‘entertains’.
Equus Productions started their great adventure with English speaking theater in Budapest in 2008. Their first production, "Equus" by Peter Shaffer was a great success, thus after a holiday break they looked for a new play to stage, and in 4 months of hard work, they are here again to captivate old and new fans.
When asked about his aims heading Equus Productions, Rhett Stevens replied:
„We would like to establish our group more, to bring English theatre to a Hungarian audience, work with Hungarian actors and help them develop their English-language skills. We would also like to be involved in educational programmes.
Ultimately, I hope we can continue to develop as a group and that we get the right backing. We are all volunteers and with everyone having other jobs, it is hard to work at a professional level
The dedicated members of Equus Productions clearly hold an agenda that deserves the interest of not only English theater enthusiasts but also of those who wish to take an active role in community building and development.
