Two years after its originally scheduled dates, we are finally performing the magnificent Flare Path by Terence Rattigan!
Flare Path opens a window into life in wartime Britain for RAF bomber crews and their wives and sweethearts.
Set in 1942 against a backdrop of heartache, loss and quiet heroism and based on Rattigan’s own experiences as a tail gunner, the story entwines the lives of three couples from very different walks of life, thrown together in both the fear and camaraderie of war.
The arrival of a former lover and an unexpected night raid cause all to question their loyalty, duty and very futures, as the fragility of life and love are exposed.
