New York City
Jonathan Cake (The Affair, Desperate Housewives) stars as Scottish meteorologist James Stagg in the US premiere of David Haig’s intense real-life thriller. It’s June, 1944 — just 72 hours prior to the D-Day landings — and Stagg is advising General Eisenhower on the weather conditions likely to prevail when 350,000 troops are to be sent across the Channel in Operation Overlord. But 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. Each of the four performances at UCLA’s state-of-the-art James Bridges Theater will be recorded live in front of an audience for future radio broadcast, distribution on CD, digital download, and online streaming. L.A. Theatre Works’ syndicated radio theater series broadcasts weekly on public radio stations across the US (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM), daily in China.
Final performance: December 17, 2023
One Night Only: December 10, 2023
