Scenes from 'Pressure'
by David Haig
AVAILABLE TO VIEW ONLINE FOR FREE: 23 – 25 July 2020
At the start of this year, none of us could have foreseen a global pandmic forcing the closure of our theatres. So "the show must go online". As part of our contributn to Caterham Festival, we have produced a Zoom rehearsed reading of selected scenes from 'Pressure' by David Haig (originally intended to be staged in May 2020).
June 1944. Final preparations are being made for the largest ever invasion of Europe - D-Day. But one last crucial factor remains... the weather. Allied Supreme Commander General Eisenhower has called in two experts: American celebrity weatherman Colonel Krick predicts sunshine for the big day, while Scotsman Dr James Stagg, Chief Meteorological Officer for the Allied Forces, forecasts a storm and recommends postponing the whole operation. The decision will not only seal the fates of thousands of troops, but could win or lose the entire war. So which of these men should he trust?
(We still intend to stage 'Pressure' in full in the theatre when we're allowed to reopen for performances - think of this as a taster!)
Tickets are FREE, and you'll need to book (using the link above) one per household - so you and your household can gather around one screen to watch it. Once booked, you'll be sent a private YouTube link during the week of the festival, where you'll be able to stream any time day or night on 23rd, 24th and 25th July.
PLEASE NOTE: just like booking normal theatre tickets, your ticket is for your household only and must not be duplicated i.e. please do not forward your ticket to friends or family for them to use (if they want to watch it too, please direct them to the TicketSource link to book their own ticket). These restrictions are part of our performing licence agreement.
A temporarily closed Theatre cannot stop our creative drive for finding new ways to produce drama. We have challenged our members to write monologues on the theme of 'Keeping in Touch‘ to be performed by our own actors and shared with our community.
A brand new set will be released in September on the theme ‘Today is a good day'.
