A beautifully warm and heartbreakingly tender play, Flare Path showcases a snapshot of life during the Second World War. Based on Terence Rattigan’s personal experiences as a tail gunner, Flare Path was first performed in 1942 when people had no idea how much longer the war would last. It truly is a remarkable play, the flashes of hope are hugely powerful.
