Shaffer was inspired to write this play when he heard of a crime of a 17-year-old who blinded six horses in a small town near Suffolk.
The play’s action is like a detective story, involving the attempts of the psychiatrist to understand the cause of the boy’s actions.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
