It will be performed in Dartford.

Based on the experiences of a tail gunner in World War Two, critically-acclaimed production Flare Path will be performed in Dartford.

The play is written by British dramatist Terence Rattigan, and it is based on his own experiences during the conflict.

The production paints a picture of life in wartime Britain, exploring the life and death existence of the RAF bomber crews and the wives and sweethearts who were left waiting for their return.

Set in 1942, it tells the story of a former actress called Patricia, who is married to RAF pilot Teddy.

Her marriage is tested to the limits by the surprise arrival of her ex-lover and Hollywood idol Peter Kyle.

An unexpected and dangerous mission over Gernany puts Patricia at the centre of an unpredictable emotional conflict.

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

Mr Seed is well-known for playing Nigel Pargetter in BBC radio series The Archers for 27 years until his dramatic exit in 2011, and his stage credits include Toad of Toad Hall and Yes Prime Minister.

Mr Edwards’ has previously starred in West End shows such as The Mousetrap and Les Miserables and Ms Dylan has performed in shows including A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Shoemaker’s Holiday.

They will be joined on stage by Charlie G Hawkins, who is well known for his role as Darren Miller in BBC soap EastEnders.

He will be taking on the role of Percy in the show.

Claire Andreadis will play Countess Skriczevinsky, William Reay will play Flying Officer Count Skriczevinsky and Corporal Jones and Jamie Hogarth will play Sergeant Miller.

Flare Path will be at the Orchard Theatre from April 5 to 9 2016.
