The Original Theatre Company and Birdsong Productions Ltd
Epic wartime romance set in 1942, against a backdrop of heartache and quiet bravery, Flare Path paints an evocative portrait of life in wartime Britain for the RAF bomber crews, their wives and sweethearts, who were left awaiting their return. RAF pilot Teddy and his wife, former actress Patricia, have their marriage tested to the limit by the surprise arrival of her ex-lover Peter Kyle.
Highly charged drama with a truly authentic taste of the fear, camaraderie and passion combine when an unexpected and dangerous mission over Germany puts Patricia at the centre of an emotional conflict as unpredictable as the war in the skies. This major revival comes from the producers behind the hit touring production of Birdsong and stars Graham Seed as Swanson (The Archers, Yes Prime Minister) and Charlie G Hawkins as Percy (EastEnders and Birdsong).

"A rallying-cry for decency and home-front heroism. Hits the emotional target as exactly as it should" ★★★★ The Daily Telegraph
