West End Review: November 2009 (1/2)

27th November 2009



Mark Shenton (Sunday Express) and his guests David Benedict (Variety), Charles Spencer (Daily Telegraph), and Matt Wolf (International Herald Tribune) chew over Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art (National), Mark Ravenhill’s Nation (National), Mike Bartlett’s Cock (Royal Court) and Michael Wynne’s The Priory (Royal Court). Recorded at Dewynters, London.

My vote went to Alex Jennings because the Britten role is quite seriously underwritten. Auden holds all the cards not least because he’s a wordsmith.
