Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art portrays a fictious meeting between the poet WH Auden and the composer Benjamin Britten in Oxford, 1973, exploring the happiness, pain and the emotional cost of creativity as they discuss their friendship and rivalry and heartache each has been through. Starring Matthew Kelly (Of Mice & Men) and David Yelland (The Crown), this is the first revival of the play since 2009.
