Auden, Britten and Alan Bennett

Blimey - Alan Bennett has written a new play about the relationship of WH Auden and Benjamin Britten. It's called The Habit of Art and opens at the Lyttleton on 5 November. It centres, apparently, on a meeting between the two late in their lives, an encounter that never actually happened - but Bennett is such a brilliant writer than I am sure we will forgive him that. Richard Griffiths plays Auden.

Richard Morrison has an article in today's Times about it
