Good Samaritan, The

David Haig
 

A provocative drama about good intentions going awry.

Alan is a loving husband, a responsible parent and an experienced Samaritan. He is a good man helping to create a kinder world. But good intentions aren't always enough, and Alan embarks on an affair with a 'client' that rocks the moral foundations of his life.

Review
'David Haig is a man of many talents. An award-winning actor (brilliantly funny in Four Weddings and a Funeral), he is also a playwright and, for a while, worked as a Samaritan. ... This is a fascinating, involving play.'  Daily Mail

My Boy Jack (TV tie-in)

David Haig
 
The year is 1913 and war with Germany is imminent. Rudyard Kipling’s determination to send his myopic son, John, to war triggers a bitter family conflict which leaves Kipling devastated by the conflict between his two greatest passions: a love for children—above all his own—and a devotion to King and Country.

Review
'A fine actor, Haig now proves to be a gifted writer as well: the play, his first, is continuously absorbing, and at its high points extremely moving.'  Sunday Telegraph


Cast : 5M, 2F (doubling required)

David Haig
 

June 1944. One man’s decision is about to change the course of history.

Everything is in place for the biggest invasion ever known in Europe – D-Day. One last crucial question remains: will the weather be right on the day?

Problematically there are two opposing forecasts. American celebrity weatherman Colonel Krick predicts sunshine, while Scot Dr James Stagg, Chief Meteorological Officer for the Allied Forces, forecasts a storm. As the world watches and waits, General Eisenhower, Allied Supreme Commander, must decide which of these bitter antagonists to trust. The decision will not only seal the fates of thousands of men, but could win or lose the entire war.

An extraordinary and little-known true story, David Haig's play thrillingly explores the responsibilities of leadership, the challenges of prophecy and the personal toll of taking a stand.

Cast : 1F, 11M, doubling possible
