Trevor Nunn helms the production, which runs through June 4. Joe Armstrong, Sarah Crowden and Clive Woods are also among the cast.

Flip through the photos below for a first look at the cast in rehearsal:

Flare Path, first performed in the West End at the Apollo Theatre in 1942, is based on Rattigan's own Bomber Command experiences when he served as a tail gunner during the Second World War. He later reworked the play into a screenplay and the re-titled "The Way to the Stars," starring Michael Redgrave, was released in 1945. The play is set in 1942. At the Falcon Hotel, on the edge of an airfield in Lincolnshire, Teddy, a young bomber pilot is celebrating a reunion with his actress wife Patricia. Events take an unexpected turn, when Peter, a famous heartthrob film star, arrives, and an urgent bombing mission over Germany is ordered. As the night gives way to dawn, Patricia finds herself at the centre of a passionate conflict of love and loyalty as unpredictable as the war in the skies.
