Equus Effect Event Tackles Trauma On Stage With “Cry Havoc”

Lisa Green reports from Lakeville. By the end of actor, playwright and veteran Stephan Wolfert’s one-man tour de force, “Cry Havoc,” the “why” of The Equus Effect became clear to anyone who may have doubted the need to help veterans successfully reenter civilian life. On Sunday, Sept. 16, The Equus Effect’s fundraising event at Quarry Hill Farm allowed supporters to bear witness to Wolfert as he performed his experience of trying to come home and re-connect with society. The Equus Effect, which began in 2013 working with 21 veterans, has grown to service 200 veterans in 2017 alone. The nonprofit organization in Sharon, Conn. empowers veterans to rebuild healthy relationships through purposeful engagement with horses. The horses help veterans focus on rebuilding trust, restoring healthy boundaries and both leading without force and relaxing without losing awareness.
