In The Habit of Art, Bennett gives us a play about a meeting between the poet WH Auden and the composer Benjamin Britten. Exploring friendship, rivalry and heartache this multi layered masterpiece examines the joy, pain and emotional cost of creativity. Alan Bennett is one our greatest and most celebrated playwrights, with a cavalcade of stage and screen blockbusters. He is applauded as a genius for his sharp character observations and treasured for the way he beautifully balances wit, wistfulness and compassion. Directed by Philip Franks and starring Matthew Kelly and David Yelland.
