FLARE PATH Closes At at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

The final performance of Trevor Nunn's critically acclaimed production of Terence Rattigan's Flare Path is today, 11 June 2011. Flare Path, which opened on 14 March, recouped after 6 weeks, and was extended due to public demand, is the first production in Nunn's role as Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Haymarket. In Rattigan's centenary year, Flare Path was the first of several major revivals of his plays in London and beyond, including Cause Célèbre at The Old Vic, a new film of The Deep Blue Sea, a season of his films at the BFI, a special display at the British Library, BBC radio productions and the publication of new editions of his work.

Set and costumes are by Stephen Brimson Lewis with lighting 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 cast comprises 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.

Following Flare Path, a further two productions will be directed by Trevor Nunn at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. After a three week run at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Nunn's production of Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead starring Samuel Barnett, Jamie Parker and Tim Curry will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 16 June - 20 August, with press night on 21 June 2011, followed by William Shakespeare's The Tempest, starring Ralph Fiennes, which will run from 27 August to 29 October, with press night on 06 September 2011.
