The full cast for John Dove’s production, transferring to the Ambassadors Theatre for a limited season, has been announced ahead of the production beginning previews on the 6th June.
Joining the previously announced David Haig, who is reprising his critically acclaimed role as Group Captain James Stagg, Malcolm Sinclair as General Eisenhower and Lauren Rogers as Kay Summersby, Andrew MacBean, Bert Seymour, David Killick, Mark Jax, Mark Kitto, Molly Roberts, Philip Cairns, Robert Heard and William Mannering will all join the cast of the West End transfer of David Haig’s play based on a true story.
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.
The production transfers to the Ambassador’s Theatre following successful runs at the Chichester Festival Theatre and London’s Park Theatre.
