Equus isn't in my library, but I've read that as well. I didn't feel the need to keep it, though. Plays are really meant to be watched whenever possible, and the film version of Equus is faithful enough to the play that my DVD should be sufficient. It's when there isn't a movie that does justice to the play (and although the film of Amadeus is good in its way, much like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, they threw out the monologues and the point with them) that I feel the need to read the script in between whatever productions I can manage to see.
So, has anybody read or seen Shaffer's works apart from these two? If I get the chance to read them (more likely than the chance to see them), should I?
I'm not a Shaffer expert but I've read a few of his plays and really enjoy them. I've noticed that his plays seem to deal with the destruction of a deity.
I've never seen any on stage but I was in a production of Amadeus that mixed the scripts up a bit and did some interesting things incorporating Mozart's music into the show.
