New Writing

Pressure is written by playwright and actor David Haig. The play was initially due to make its world premiere in May 2013, before transferring to the Chichester Festival Theatre, with whom the play is co-produced, however was postponed due to difficulty in casting the lead role.On 30 April 2013, it was announced the play would now premiere as part of the Lyceum Theatre's 2013-14 season and would begin previews at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh on 1 May 2014, with an official opening night on 6 May, booking for a limited period until 24 May. The play came about after John Dove approached Haig to write the play around two and a half years prior. Haig went on to play the lead role of James Stagg himself, despite having initially intended not to do so over his fears that he could not play “a Scot authentically”. Speaking about playing the role, Haig said that “One thing I am drawing on is people who carry anxiety well camouflaged within an apparently confident exterior. That’s me, but it also happens to be James Stagg. His brusqueness, his efficiency, his professionalism is what came out on the top, but inside he’s extremely anxious about the whole scenario. He goes through a journey in trying to keep it together.”
