Flare Path

by Terence Rattigan

Directed by Gillian Gissing

An amateur production by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd

Based on Terence Rattigan’s own experience of comradeship, duty and fear as a tail gunner in the RAF during WW2, Flare Path relaunched his career and touched audiences deeply.  Reviewing the opening night in 1942, The Sunday Times called it ‘A laugh every minute, a roar every five minutes, and a tear every ten’ while Winston Churchill called it ‘a masterpiece’.

Trevor Nunn’s 2011 West End production starring Sienna Miller, James Purefoy and Sheridan Smith proved hugely popular and was followed by an Original Theatre Company touring production in 2015. Both reminded audiences what a terrific play it is.
