Casting is now complete for the West End transfer of David Haig's World War II thriller Pressure, which will begin previews June 6—the 74th anniversary of D-Day—at the Ambassadors Theatre.
Playwright Haig, who will reprise his critically acclaimed role as Group Captain James Stagg, will be joined by Malcolm Sinclair as General Eisenhower and Lauren Rogers as Kay Summersby, with Andrew MacBean, Bert Seymour, David Killick, Mark Jax, Mark Kitto, Molly Roberts, Philip Cairns, Robert Heard, and William Mannering.
The transfer follows a celebrated run at Chichester Festival Theatre and a sold-out run at the Park Theatre. Most company members reprise their performances from the previous engagements.
Pressure, based on the true story of two warring Allied meteorologists tasked with predicting the weather conditions for the D-Day landings, features direction 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.
Performances are currently scheduled through September 1.
Pressure will be produced by Cambridge Arts Theatre, Jenny King, Jonathan Church Productions, and Oliver Mackwood Productions.
