‘Capital city, you now have your chance. Don’t blow it…’ PRESSURE – Touring ★★★★★

In Opinion, Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews, Touring by Libby PurvesLeave a Comment

Pressure, a terrific meteorological thriller, set in the crucial days before D-Day, is written by – and stars – David Haig. It is a beautifully researched and immaculately pitched piece about the British meteorologist Dr Stagg who had to defy Eisenhower’s own met-man and tell the vulnerable expeditionary force first not to go on D-Day – and then, even more audaciously, to take a run at it in the eight-hour lull between storms the next day.
