Flare Path

By Terence Rattigan
Directed by Pat Trueman

First performed in 1942, Terence Rattigan wrote Flare Path while serving as an air gunner with the RAF during the Second World War.

Set in a hotel near an RAF Bomber Command airbase during the Second World War, this story of love and loyalty follows a group of RAF airmen and their wives over the course of a day, including Patricia Graham, who finds herself at the centre of a love triangle, torn between her husband Lieutenant Teddy Graham and her old flame, famous film star Peter Kyle.
