Flare Path

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. Flare Path was first performed in the West End at the Apollo Theatre in 1942. It is based on Rattigan's own Bomber Command experiences when he served as a tail gunner during the Second World War.
Author Terence Rattigan
