x Equus' is psych drama By WILLIAM GLOVER AP Dr»m» Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- Peter Shaffer has an explanation of his own for all t h o s e explanations that have been circulating about his hit drama "Equus." "This is a very psychologically oriented city," says the British author. "So a play that shows a psychiatrist doubting the premises of his own profession is bound to make people very excited, worried and argumentative." The odds-on favorite to win Broadway's annual scramble for Tony Awards and Critics Circle citation was highly praised in London without causing, reports its sire, nearly as much public discussion. "In England," he offers as the rationale for such serenity, "it would be fairly unusual if more than one or two per cent of any audience was ever in analysis. Here it would be Very unusual if a majority of an audience hadn't had a brush with analysis." Shaffer himself has never taken to the Freudian couch and is variously amused, irritated or amazed by the sundry meanings attributed to "Equus" since it arrived in October at the Plymouth Theater. The play centers upon a youth who blinds six horses for whom he previously has shown great affection, and the efforts of an analyist to uncover the cause of such gory outburst. At the end, the doctor muses upon the effect of the cure on his patient's individuality. Spectators, in turn, have found: the play is a manifesto for permissiveness; that it is a disguised homosexual narrative; it is an attack on mental therapy. "Then there are totally lunatic letters" the writer has gotten from people who detect arcane meaning even in the names of characters. "What surprises me most is that one of the play's main elements has never been discussed. People also choose the theme where the play psychiatrist says passion can be destroyed by a doctor but it can't be created. Running Short?
