Playful Productions co-produced and general managed Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, which ran from 4 March to 11 June 2011 during Rattigan’s centenary year. Directed by Trevor Nunn, the production starred Sienna Miller, James Purefoy, Sheridan Smith and Harry Hadden-Paton. The set and costume design was by Stephen Brimson Lewis, lighting by Paul Pyant, sound by Paul Groothuis and casting by Maggie Lunn CDG. Sheridan Smith won the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role.

Flare Path was produced by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Theatre Royal Haymarket Company, Act Productions and Tom McKitterick.
