Hannah Blaikie is currently touring with the Bill Kenwright Production of Black Coffee. Hercule Poirot returns to the stage in Agatha Christie’s Black Coffee, now starring Jason Durr from ITV’s hit series Heartbeat in the role of the famous Belgian sleuth. A quintessential English country estate is thrown into chaos following the murder of eccentric inventor Sir Claud Amory, and the theft of his new earth shattering formula. Arriving at the Estate moments too late, one man immediately senses a potent brew of despair, treachery, and deception amid the estate’s occupants. That man is Hercule Poirot. In the first play ever written by Agatha Christie we are introduced to a character who went on to become the most famous detective of all time and the only fictional character ever to receive a full-page obituary in the New York Times.
