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 will transfer to the West Ends' Ambassador's Theatre for a limited season from 6 June to 1 September 2018.

The transfer follows a celebrated run at Chichester Festival Theatre (5 stars from the; Daily Telegraph, Observer & Evening Standard), a national tour (in association with Cambridge Arts Theatre and Touring Consortium Company) and a sold out run at the Park Theatre.

David Haig reprises his role as Group Captain James Stagg, alongside Malcolm Sinclair as General Eisenhower and Laura Rogers as Kay Summersby, with further casting to be announced in due course.

David Haig said "I am absolutely thrilled that Pressure is transferring to the West End on 6 June. What sublime timing that my play about the weather forecaster for D-Day, will open on the 74th anniversary of the D-Day invasions. 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."

Pressure is directed by John Dove, with design by Colin Richmond, lighting by Tim Mitchell, sound by Philip Pinsky, video by Andrzej Goulding and casting by Lisa Makin.

2018-09-03 Brilliant Acting and Script
2018-09-02 Fantastic play, loved it!
2018-09-01 superb historical drama David Haig brilliant as usual
2018-08-31 Marvellous performance, pity about the cramped seats!
2018-08-31 good atmosphere & acting. slight issue could see the dateline from back row of the stalls, bit of an issue in a time critical play
2018-08-25 The play was so well written, historically interesting, very well acted and surprisingly amusing.
2018-08-24 An excellent production in all respects. Tightly written, well performed and no gimmicks.
2018-08-22 Brilliantly written and performed; flawless production
2018-08-20 Excellent show, first class entertainment I would highly recommend it
2018-08-20 Fantastic subject matter and the right actors to deliver a really interesting show - acid test ..would I see it again? Yes this was my second visit - I saw it first in Richmond.
2018-08-18 Excellent writing. Clever inclusion of humour. Facts about historical events carefully presented without being didactic or patronising. Suspense maintained even though the outcome of the story is a matter of record. Convincing character portrayal of Stagg and Eisenhower by 2 English actors, and of Somersby by a Welsh actress. Commendable. David Haig is superb!
2018-08-17 It was a great show, well acted!!
2018-08-16 Brilliant story line and acting. We felt as if we were in the moment.
2018-08-16 Excellent production - superb script that tells a fascinating story and beautiful acting. Would absolutely recommend.
2018-08-13 The show was gripping from beginning to end. Although we had a good idea of the story, it was put over with such force that the whole process of 'when to go' was always on a knife edge. The acting was strong all the way through and I am not surprised by how many times we were urged by our friends to see the play. A classic.
2018-08-12 Superb writing and imaginative use of "one room " for all the action
2018-08-12 I enjoyed the play but the actors often seemed to be talking with their heads pointing at the floor. Hence from my seat, I could not hear them well.
2018-08-10 Most enjoyable. Some very funny moments.
2018-08-10 Marvelous snippet of history that most of us didn’t know - terrific!
2018-08-06 Good play. Well acted and presented.
2018-08-06 Gripping, moving and funny
2018-08-06 Very interesting and engrossing production. Excellent acting.
2018-08-05 superbly acted drama, one really fro the more experienced theatre goer or student of modern history, not really for children
2018-08-05 This was my second visit to 'Pressure'. As a regular theatregoer I rate this play very high on my list.
2018-08-02 Such a powerful production. It lived up to our expectations totally
