Full casting announced for Flare Path 2016 national tour

Full casting has been announced for the 2016 national tour of Flare Path by Terence Rattigan.

Directed by Justin Audibert, the tour will open on 27th January at the Connaught Theatre in Worthing. 

Having recently played Gregory Cromwell in Wolf Hall & Bring Up the Bodies in the West End and on Broadway, Daniel Fraser (pictured) will play Teddy Graham opposite Audrey Palmer as Mrs Oakes. 

They join previously announced cast members including: Graham Seed (The Archers) as Squadron Leader Swanson, Lynden Edwards (A Little Night Musi) as Peter Kyle, Hedydd Dylan (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Patricia Graham and Charlie G Hawkins (EastEnders) as Percy.

The cast also features: Claire Andreadis as Countess Skriczevinsky (Doris), William Reay as Flying Officer Count Skriczevinsky and Corporal Jones (Wiggy), Jamie Hogarth as Sergeant Miller (Dusty), Polly Hughes as Mrs Miller (Maudie) and Emma Carter as Betty. 

Set in 1942 against a backdrop of heartache and quiet bravery, FLARE PATH tells the story of former actress Patricia, the wife of RAF pilot Teddy, whose marriage is tested to the limits by the surprise arrival of Patricia’s ex‐lover and Hollywood idol Peter Kyle. An unexpected and dangerous mission over Germany puts Patricia at the centre of an emotional conflict as unpredictable as the war in the skies.

Set and costume design is by Hayley Grindle, with lighting by Alex Wardle and sound by Dominic Bilkey
