Sienna Miller toplines ‘Flare Path’

Trevor Nunn directs Terence Rattigan's 1942 drama

Sienna Miller will star in a West End revival of writer Terence Rattigan’s 1942 drama “Flare Path,” helmed by Trevor Nunn and designed by Stephen Brimson Lewis.

The play, a triangle of love and loyalty between Miller’s character, her WWII bomber pilot husband and a screen heartthrob, is produced by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Prods., Tom McKitterick and the Theater Royal Haymarket Company. in association with Act Prods. Previews begin March 4, ahead of a March 10 opening.

Miller, best known for her screen work, made her West End debut as Celia in “As You Like It” in 2005. In 2009 she starred in Mark Brokaw’s Gotham production of “After Miss Julie.”

“Flare Path” is the first of three plays that Nunn will direct for the Theater Royal Haymarket Company. The other titles are under wraps, but a Tom Stoppard revival has been rumored, plus another attempt by Nunn to direct Stephen Sondheim’s “Follies,” a project he failed to bring to fruition during his tenure as a.d. at the National Theater.

Rattigan, who died in 1977, wrote plays including “The Deep Blue Sea,” recently filmed by Terence Davies, starring Rachel Weisz.

The upcoming David Parfitt/Weinstein Co. movie “My Week With Marilyn,” starring Michelle Williams and Eddie Redmayne, is the story of the traumas on the set of 1957 movie “The Prince and the Showgirl,” starring Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier, which Rattigan adapted from his play “The Sleeping Prince.”
