The playwright Sir Peter Shaffer, whose critical and popular successes in the West End and Broadway included Equus, Amadeus, and The Royal Hunt of the Sun, has died in Ireland aged 90.
Sir Peter wrote more than 18 plays including and Amadeus, a haunting psychological drama about the relationship between Mozart and his less gifted admirer and bitter rival composer Salieri that became a hugely successful Hollywood film. The adaptation won eight Oscars in 1985, including best film and a screenwriting award for Shaffer. It was revived in 2014 to re-open the Chichester Festival theatre, another venue closely associated with his work.
