Robert Lindsey and Joanna Lumley in The Lion in Winter at Theatre Royal Haymarket

Robert Lindsey and Joanna Lumley starring in The Lion in Winter at Theatre Royal Haymarket from 05-Nov-2011 until 28-Jan-2012. 

A family Christmas becomes a family at war. Henry II, not so young as he was, invites his estranged wife Eleanor of Aquitane, and his three sons, Richard, Geoffrey and John, to spend the festive season with him, his mistress Princess Alais, and her brother, the young King Philip of France. Will Henry name who is to be his successor as King of England? Their yuletide celebration turns into a combat zone of deceit, betrayal, bitter power games and scabrous wit.

“I am excited to be directing the London premiere of a famous play about a power struggle full of sexual politics and political sex, with two such brilliant actors as Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley.” – Trevor Nunn

Sienna Miller in Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path

Trevor Nunn directs Sienna Miller in Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path – his first production as Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Haymarket Company.

A story of love, loyalty and desire set at the height of the Second World War. In a country house hotel on the edge of R.A.F. Bomber Command airfield, the women wait for news of their husbands return from a dangerous bombing mission behind enemy lines.

The lives of a newly married R.A.F. bomber pilot and his actress wife, Patricia, are thrown into upheaval by the unexpected night mission.  The arrival of Peter Kyle, a Hollywood star, and the outcome of the night raid on Germany,  throws up a conflict of love and duty for Patricia. With life and relationships hanging in the balance, will the lights of the flare path welcome the courageous airmen back home?

Based on Rattigan’s own experiences as a tail gunner in the RAF during the Second World War, he later reworked Flare Path into a screenplay and in 1954 the re-titled The Way to the Stars starring Michael Redgrave was released.
