Photos: Miller, Purefoy & Smith Rehearse FLARE PATH

Sienna Miller, James Purefoy and Sheridan Smith will lead the cast in Terence Rattigan's Flare Path at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, directed by Trevor Nunn. Opening on 10 March 2011 with previews from 4 March 2011 Flare Path is booking until 4 June 2011. Set and costumes are by Stephen Brimson Lewis with light by Paul Pyant, sound by Paul Groothuis and projection design by Jack James. Flare Path is produced by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Theatre Royal Haymarket Company, ACT Productions Ltd and Tom McKitterick.

The full cast is Joe Armstrong (Dusty), Jim Creighton (Wiggy Jones), Sarah Crowden (Mrs.Oakes), Mark Dexter (Count Skriczevinsky), Harry Hadden-Paton (Teddy), Emma Handy (Maudie), Sienna Miller (Patricia), James Purefoy (Peter), Sheridan Smith (Doris), Matthew Tennyson (Percy) and Clive Wood (Swanson).

It is 1942. At the Falcon Hotel, on the edge of an airfield in Lincolnshire, Teddy, a young bomber pilot is celebrating a reunion with his actress wife Patricia. Events take an unexpected turn, when Peter a famous heartthrob 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.
