Flare Path plays at the Haymarket

Date Posted: 28/01/2011

Trevor Nun will direct Sienna Miller, James Purefoy and Sheridan Smith in Terrance Rattigan’s Flare Path at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Opening on the 10th March and currently booking until the 4th June, Flare Path is based on Rattigan’s Bomber Command experiences when he served as a tail gunner during World War Two.

Set in 1942, it follows a reunion between young bomber pilot Teddy and his actress wife Patricia. Events take an unexpected turn, when Peter a famous film star arrives, and an urgent bombing mission over Germany is ordered. As the night gives way to dawn, Patricia finds herself at the centre of a passionate conflict of love and loyalty, as unpredictable as the war in the skies.

Additional cast members include Joe Armstrong (Dusty), Sarah Crowden (Mrs Oakes), and Clive Woods (Swanson). Performance times are Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm.

Group bookings of eight plus can take advantage of discounted rates.
