As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Monday 2 July 2018, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock is back in the West End for the transfer of acclaimed new World War II drama Pressure. Got any questions for playwright and star David Haig?

It’s the eve of D-Day 1944 & 350,000 lives depend on one of the most important weather forecasts of all time…

72 hours prior to the D-Day landings, Scottish meteorologist, Group Captain James Stagg, advises General Eisenhower on the weather conditions likely to prevail when 350,000 troops are to be sent across the Channel in Operation Overlord. With Stagg predicting severe storms and Irving P Krick – Hollywood’s meteorological movie consultant – predicting beautiful weather, the future of Britain, Europe and the United States rests on one single forecast.

Based on the remarkable true story of two warring Allied meteorologists tasked with predicting the weather conditions for the D-Day landings, David Haig’s critically acclaimed play Pressure has transferred to the West End’s Ambassador’s Theatre for a limited season following a celebrated premiere at Chichester Festival Theatre, national tour and sold-out run at London’s Park Theatre.

Haig reprises his role as Group Captain James Stagg, alongside Malcolm Sinclair as General Eisenhower and Laura Rogers as Kay Summersby, along with Andrew MacBean, Bert Seymour, David Killick, Mark Jax, Mark Kitto, Molly Roberts, Philip Cairns, Robert Heard and William Mannering.

Commenting on the production’s West End transfer, Haig said: “The play has been profoundly fulfilling to write and perform. It’s about one of the great unsung heroes of the 20th century, and I’m so proud that his story will now be available to a West End audience. I couldn’t be more excited.”

For the post-show Q&A on Monday 2 July 2018, I’ll be joined by Pressure author and star David Haig along with other members of the company.
