Arena: Peter Shaffer airs Wednesday 6 December 2023 on BBC Four.

What is this episode about

Peter Shaffer, a playwright, discusses his life and work in the theatre.

‘I think the live experience in the theatre is very important when you can see shocks and murmurs going through the house. It has a communal nature. A great play or a great production is a revelation, this is the function of all art, it doesn’t have to be solemn – it’s a moment, a leap of excitement inside oneself, which can be attached to a moral insight or a laugh, and it comes bolting out like rabbits out of a hedge.’

With an extract from the 1976 stage production of Equus starring Colin Blakely and Gerry Sundquist.
