Robert Powell to star in Black Coffee tour

Robert Powell is to star as Hercule Poirot in a new production of Agatha Christie’s first ever play Black Coffee.

The show will be embarking on a UK tour opening on 7th January 2014 at Theatre Royal in Windsor.

Mathew Prichard, Agatha Christie’s grandson and chairman of Agatha Christie Ltd, said, “I am so pleased that Robert Powell has agreed to play Poirot in the Agatha Christie Theatre Co’s production of Black Coffee starting in January. He will be the latest in a long line of distinguished actors to play the role, and a real treat lies in store in 2014 for all those around the country who go to see the play.”
