The Habit of Art

Alan Bennett is one of our greatest, most celebrated playwrights, with blockbusters including The History Boys, The Madness of King George and Talking Heads. He is applauded as a genius for his sharp character observations and treasured for the way he beautifully balances wit, wistfulness and compassion.

In The Habit of Art, Bennett portrays 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. This production directed by Philip Franks marks the first revival of the play since its opening at the National Theatre and stars the Olivier Award-winning Matthew Kelly (Toast and Educating Rita), David Yelland (Chariots of Fire and The Crown) and Veronica Roberts (Peak Practice).
