More information about Pressure

Who knew the weather forecast could be so exciting? In “Pressure,” meteorologist Captain James Stagg has the task of predicting the weather for what would become one of the most important missions during World War II. His word on the weather conditions would give the go-ahead to thousands of troops invading Normandy. Get it right and he will have played a key part in one of the most successful missions ever attempted. Get it wrong, and he’ll be responsible for the the death of thousands of young men. While battling with his American counterpart on making the decision, Stagg must each do what he can to convince General Eisenhower, the man who will ultimately make the decision.

This tense and gripping play breezed through critical reviews, picking up five star notices from The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and the Evening Standard. Written by and starring esteemed actor, David Haig, “Pressure” is the perfect play whatever the temperature!

What to watch for

Keep an eye out for the beautiful, old-fashioned weather maps used in the show to predict the weather. Designed by Colin Richmond, these floor-to-ceiling maps make a simple-yet-effective backdrop for the action.

The show is a co-production between Chichester Festival Theatre and Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh. It premiered in Edinburgh, before a run at the Chichester Festival and a national tour. The West End transfer coincided with the 74th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Malcolm Sinclair, who plays General Eisenhower, was formerly a President...of the actors’ union, Equity.
