NT LIVE 50th Anniversary Encore screening - THE HABIT OF ART
Cinestudio Theater
Hartford, CT
Share this event:



National Theatre Live's 2010 broadcast of Alan Bennett's acclaimed play The Habit of Art, with Richard Griffiths, Alex Jennings and Frances de la Tour, returns to cinemas as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations.

Benjamin Britten, sailing uncomfortably close to the wind with his new opera, Death in Venice, seeks advice from his former collaborator and friend, W H Auden. During this imagined meeting, their first for twenty-five years, they are observed and interrupted by, amongst others, their future biographer and a young man from the local bus station.

Alan Bennett's play is as much about the theatre as it is about poetry or music. It looks at the unsettling desires of two difficult men, 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.

'Another absolute cracker, often wonderfully and sometimes filthily funny, but also deeply and unexpectedly moving.'
Daily Telegraph

'Bennett the maestro returns with a multi-layered masterpiece.'
Independent

'A superbly fluid production by Nicholas Hytner and beautifully acted.'
Guardian
