The Original Theatre Company’s production of ‘The Habit of Art’ to be filmed in a closed performance for download!

In light of the most recent government advice due to COVID-19, The Original Theatre Company’s production of Alan Bennett’s THE HABIT OF ART, which was due to open at Eastbourne’s Devonshire Park Theatre tonight, will now perform a closed filmed performance at 2pm this afternoon.

Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne has made the decision to close the theatre to the public, however the company of THE HABIT OF ART, having rehearsed for three weeks, still wanted to perform. The performance will be filmed and the hope is that it will be made available to audiences in due course to download.

THE HABIT OF ART is directed by Philip Franks and stars Matthew Kelly as Fitz (W. H. Auden), David Yelland as Henry (Benjamin Britten), Veronica Roberts (Kay, the stage manager), Robert Moutnford (Neil, the author), John Wark (Donald/Humphrey Carpenter), Jessica Dennis (George, the assistant stage manager) and Benjamin Chandler (Tim/Stuart).

This new production of THE HABIT OF ART has been designed by Adrian Linford, with lighting by Johanna Town, sound by Max Pappenheim and casting by Joyce Nettles.
