Add Pressure to your Itinerary


Set in June 1944 at a time when one man’s decision is about to change the course of history.

An intense real-life thriller centered around 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 in Operation Overlord. The future of Britain, Europe and our relationship with the United States is at stake as well of the lives of millions.

Pressure is the extraordinary and little known story of a one man who changed the course of war, and our lives, forever. Ably supported by a talented cast of ten, David Haig plays the leading role of Groups Captain Stagg.

David Haig is a four time nominee and Olivier Award winning actor best known for his roles in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral, TV series The Thin Blue Line and stage production The Madness of King George III. He is also an award winning playwright. He wrote, and starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe, in My Boy Jack - which was made into a TV drama for Granada in 2007.
