Haig’s play sees him play James Stagg, a meteorologist who advised Eisenhower to go ahead with the D-Day Landings based on his weather report, ultimately triggering process that would eventually end the Second World War.
Joining Haig in reprising their roles from the Park Theatre production will be Malcolm Sinclair as Eisenhower, and Laura Rogers as Kay Summersby, Eisenhower’s secretary.

In a four-star review of the Park Theatre run, Mark Shenton said: “Who knew that play about the weather and one of its forecasters could provide such stimulating drama? Haig masterfully pulls off a double triumph, delivering a brilliant performance in a fine play.”
