Sienna Miller will star in World War Two stage drama “Flare Path” by Terence Rattigan. The play will be directed by Trevor Nunn at the Theater Royal Haymarket in London as part of the centenary celebrations of Rattigan’s birth in 1911.
The playwright later adapted Flare Path, which was first performed in London during the war in 1942, into a screenplay resulting in the 1945 movie “The Way to the Stars,” featuring Michael Redgrave and John Mills. The plot of the stage version centers around a love triangle that develops between Teddy, a young bomber pilot, his actress wife Patricia and a heartthrob movie star Peter.
