David Haig is an Olivier award-winning actor and FIPA award-winning writer.
His writing credits include: MY BOY JACK which opened at Hampstead Theatre in 1997 and subsequently toured in 2004; THE GOOD SAMARITAN (Hampstead Theatre, 2000) and PRESSURE (a co-production by Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Chichester Festival Theatre) which was nominated for Best New Play at the 2014 UK Theatre Awards. The play was revived in 2018. It toured the country, ran at the Park Theatre in Finsbury Park for 2 months, and then transferred to the West End for a sold out run at the Ambassador’s Theatre.
In 2007, David adapted MY BOY JACK for screen, produced by Ecosse Films and ITV. The adaptation, which starred David alongside Daniel Radcliffe, Carey Mulligan and Kim Cattrall, won Best Screenplay at the International Festival of Audiovisual Programs (FIPA) in 2008.
David is currently working on a new play: MAGIC, a commission by Nicholas Hytner for the Bridge Theatre. He is also developing a film version of PRESSURE with Working Title and Studio Canal.
