The Habit Of Art

Audio described in-house.

The critically acclaimed production of the masterly Alan Bennett comedy is coming to Northampton following a hugely successful UK tour.

One of our greatest playwrights, Bennett is celebrated for his sharp character observations and treasured for the way he beautifully balances wit, wistfulness and compassion. In The Habit Of Art, we witness a meeting between two of the 20th century’s most remarkable artists, 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 beautifully nuanced production is directed by Phillip Franks and stars the Olivier Award-winning Matthew Kelly (Of Mice And Men, Toast, Pride And Prejudice) David Yelland (Chariots Of Fire, The Crown) and Veronica Roberts (Peak Practice, Tenko).
