SIENNA MILLER is to return to the West End stage for the first time in six years with the play Flare Path at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, where she’ll take on the role of a woman caught up in a love-triangle.

Though Miller trod the boards of Broadway in 2009 with After Miss Julie, she hasn’t been in a London production since 2005 when she appeared in As You Like It.

This time around, Miller and Flare Path form part of Trevor Nunn’s opening series of shows for the Theatre Royal Haymarket, a series that is also set to include “one of Shakespeare’s late plays; an early Stoppard; and Stephen Sondheim’s Follies”, according to the Daily Mail.

In a busy day for Miller, the actress beloved of the gossip pages was also at the centre of a big political story.

It was her lawyers who unearthed the evidence of phone-tapping that led to former News of the World editor Andy Coulson jacking in his job as David Cameron’s spin-doctor. Back in 2008, Miller won £35,000 from the same paper and The Sun in a breach-of-privacy case.

Flare Path is due to open on 10 March and run through until 4 June.
