See British theatre on screen

Gee, I’ve never seen theatre on a movie screen before.....Tomorrow night British playwright Alan Bennett’s acclaimed new play The Habit of Art will be screened throughout Canada at Cineplex theatres. This includes Windsor’s Devonshire Mall theatres.....According to Cineplex the play will be “filmed live” at London’s National Theatre and broadcast at 7 pm ET......The Habit of Art is about the relationship between composer Benjamin Britten and poet W.H. Auden – “two difficult men”..... Richard Griffiths is Auden and Alex Jennings, Britten.....The play "reflects on growing old, on creativity and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion’s spent: ultimately, on the habit of art."
