Wonderfully and sometimes filthily funny, but also deeply and unexpectedly moving.” – Daily Telegraph

The Habit of Art
is as much about the theatre as it is about poetry or music. It looks at the unsettling desires of two difficult men – Benjamin Britten and W H Auden – and at the ethics of biography. It reflects on growing old, on creativity and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion’s spent: ultimately, on the habit of art.  The cast is led by Tony Award winner Richard Griffiths, Alex Jennings, Adrian Scarborough and Tony Award winner Frances de la Tour.
