Set in June 1944 at a time when one man’s decision is about to change the course of history, Pressure is an intense real-life thriller centred on the most important weather forecast in the history of warfare.

Scottish meteorologist, Group Captain James Stagg, advises General Eisenhower on when to give the order to send thousands of waiting troops across the Channel for the D-Day landings. The future of Britain, Europe and the UK’s relationship with the United States is at stake as well as the lives of millions.

David Haig playing Group Captain Stagg leads a cast of ten. A four time nominee and Olivier Award-winning actor, David Haig is best known for his roles in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Thin Blue Line and The Thick Of It on television and his outstanding performances in Bath in The Madness of George III, King Lear and Racing Demon. He is also an award-winning playwright who wrote and starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe in My Boy Jack, which was made into a TV drama for Granada in 2007.
