Theatre Rhinoceros revives its spring production of Alan Bennett's 'The Habit of Art'

|
()

If the disheveled book shelves, garden of crumpled paper balls, and two upstage pianos (in Gilbert Johnson's scenic design) seems to belie the neatness of the play's construction, Bennett's care and control evoke precisely the untidiness of life. It's maybe this that attracts him more than anything else — the messiness of personality, love, sex, art, loyalty, and all of the things we'd like to think of as pure and inviolate. *
