A gala preview for Trevor Nunn's revival of Flare Path was held last night (10 March 2011) with a host of stars supporting the play's all-star cast led by Sienna Miller, James Purefoy and Sheridan Smith.

Terence Rattigan’s 1942 play about a World War II love triangle had originally been scheduled to open last night but deferred until Monday (14 March 2011) so it did not clash with the official reopening of the RSC's Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Among the those in attendance for Nunn's first offering in a year-long season as artistic director of the Theatre Royal Haymarket were Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Matthew Williamson, Stephen Baccari, Rebecca Night and Susannah and Julian Fellowes.
