“Terrific meteorological thriller... Directed... with sure sharp concentration... Beautifully researched and immaculately pitched”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“A good yarn well-told... a cracker... Fleet-footed production... Utterly engrossing.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“David Haig terrific in his own drama.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“A highly watchable, microscopic look into the mechanics of battle.”

Alistair Wilkinson (Broadway World)

“Haig masterfully pulls off a double triumph, delivering a brilliant performance in a fine play.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Amid the forecasts and deliberations there’s emotional complexity. All the performances are vivid.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Gripping... Haig has fashioned a fascinating play from a hitherto overlooked aspect of the Allied campaign.”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“Schematic but affecting wartime drama of meteorology, family and unsung heroism.”

“Makes weather forecasting thrilling, which is kind of impressive. Haig writes sparky, funny dialogue.”
