About the show
"Pressure" is directed by John Dove and stars David Haig, an Olivier Award-winning actor, who has starred in "Four Weddings and a Funeral", "The Thin Blue Line" and "The Madness of King George III" at the National Theatre.
The production tells the story of a Scottish meteorologist, Group Captain James Stagg, who is ordered to Portsmouth to advise General Eisenhower on sending thousands of troops across the Channel in Operation Overlord, which began the D Day landings. In what was the most important weather forecast in the history of warfare, Stagg single-handedly changed the course of the war and the UK's relationship with the US for ever.
