June 1944. Everything is in place for the biggest invasion ever known in Europe – D-Day. But one last crucial factor remains: the weather. American celebrity weatherman Colonel Krick predicts sunshine, while Scotsman Dr James Stagg, Chief Meteorological Officer for the Allied Forces, forecasts a storm. General Eisenhower, Allied Supreme Commander, knows the decision will not only seal the fates of thousands of men, but could win or lose the entire war: so which of these rival experts should he trust? This play has been chosen to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May 2020.
