Pressure, the acclaimed play by David Haig, is being performed at the Cambridge Arts Theatre from Thursday 1 to Saturday 10 February.

It tells the remarkable real-life tale of two warring Allied meteorologists tasked with predicting the weather conditions for the D-Day landings.

72 hours prior to the D-Day landings, Scottish meteorologist, group captain James Stagg, advises General Eisenhower on the weather conditions likely to prevail when 350,000 troops are to be sent across the Channel in Operation Overlord.

With Stagg predicting severe storms and Irving P. Krick - Hollywood’s meteorological movie consultant - predicting beautiful weather, the future of Britain, Europe and the United States rests on one single forecast.

Tickets range from £23 - £42 per person, including a £3 booking fee. Running time 150 minutes. Performances are at 2.30pmn and 7.45pm. There is no show on 4 February. Visit www.cambridgeartstheatre.com
