The show stars Graham Seed, Lynden Edwards and Hedydd Dylan.

Terence Rattigan’s critically-acclaimed production Flare Path will begin its run at the Orchard Theatre next month.

The show will be at the Dartford venue from April 5 to 9.

The cast will be led by Graham Seed as Squadron Leader Swanson, Lynden Edwards as Peter Kyle and Hedydd Dylan as Patricia Graham.

Based on Mr Rattigan’s own experiences as a tail gunner during the Second World War, Flare Path paints a picture of life in wartime Britain for the RAF bomber crews and the wives and sweethearts who were left waiting for their return.

Set in 1942, Flare Path tells the story of former actress Patricia, the wife of RAF pilot Teddy, whose marriage is tested by the surprise arrival of her 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.

The play is directed by Justin Audibert.
