'Pressure' by Michael Haig at the Talisman Theatre

D-Day's fate hangs on one forecast.

'Pressure' by David Haig

Directed by Michael Seeley

Prepare for an intense theatrical experience with 'Pressure' by David Haig.

Set during a pivotal moment in history, this gripping production follows the high-stakes decisions of a weather forecaster during World War II.

An intense real-life thriller centered around the most important weather forecast in the history of warfare. June 1944. One man's decision is about to change the course of history.

Everything is in place for the biggest invasion ever known in Europe – D-Day. One last crucial question remains: will the weather be right on the day?

Problematically there are two opposing forecasts. American celebrity weatherman Colonel Krick predicts sunshine, while Scot Dr James Stagg, Chief Meteorological Officer for the Allied Forces, forecasts a storm. As the world watches and waits, General Eisenhower, Allied Supreme Commander, must decide which of these bitter antagonists to trust.

An extraordinary and little-known true story, David Haig's play thrillingly explores the responsibilities of leadership, the challenges of prophecy and the personal toll of taking a stand.

Don't miss this thought-provoking and suspenseful play that explores the human side of wartime strategy as 2024 marks the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
