Written by Britain's Alan Bennett, whose works include the award-winning Broadway hit The History Boys, this poignant yet raunchily funny play tells the story of the shattered friendship between poet W. H. Auden and composer Benjamin Britten. Examining the unsettling desires of two difficult men, and the ethics of biography itself, it reflects on growing old, on talent and inspiration, and on persisting when all passion's spent. Met with wild acclaim upon its London debut in 2009, The Habit of Art is a complex and fascinating play about the intersection of creativity and desire. Learn More

Wonderful ensemble. Loved to see so many talented bay area actresses and actors work their magic. A sweetly old-fashioned and light and sad and funny collection of stories. Engaging, uplifting without being saccharine.

About the Ticket Supplier: Z Space StudioFounded in 1993 by David Dower, the Z Space Studio has become one of the nation's leading laboratories for the development of new voices, new works and new directions in American theater.
By creating a space where all types of artistic development can occur side by side, the Z Space has become what Berkeley Repertory Theatre's Artistic Director Tony Taccone describes as "a virtual bastion of creativity, a bubbling cauldron of new work, and a safe haven for unfettered creative expression."
Given the nature of development as a "behind the scenes" endeavor, the Studio's impact is often invisible to the general public. However, whether they know it or not, over 100,000 people across the country experience theater from artists that developed at the Studio through our three main programs (Word for Word Performing Arts Company, Z Plays Development, and Youth Arts).
The Z Space employs hundreds of artists each year in the process of developing new works -- creating work for a diverse audiences in fields as varied as solo performance, ensemble theater, puppetry, acrobatics, dance, and multimedia production.
