Hi, what are you looking for?


Jason Durr to star as Hercule Poirot

Former Heartbeat heart-throb to play Christie’s Belgian sleuth in UK tour.

Jason Durr

Bill Kenwright by special arrangement with Agatha Christie Ltd presents The Agatha Christie Theatre Company’s Black Coffee.

No stranger to sleuthing, Jason Durr has recently appeared on UK stages in the title role of Sherlock Holmes: The Best Kept Secret. He’s also taken on roles in TV series such as Lewis (ITV); Midsomer Murders (ITV) Miss Marple: The Blue Geranium (ITV); Inspector Morse (ITV); The Chief (ITV) and, of course, Heartbeat (ITV).

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 just moments too late, Hercule Poirot immediately senses a potent brew of despair, treachery, and deception amid the estate’s occupants.

Black Coffee features a heavy-weight cast including Agatha Christie Company regulars: Liza Goddard (Give Us A Clue), Gary Mavers (Peak Practice) and Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier).

Black Coffee follows The Agatha Christie Theatre Company’s hugely successful The Hollow, The Unexpected Guest, And Then There Were None, Spider’s Web, Witness for the Prosecution, Verdict, Murder on the Nile and Go Back For Murder.

It will be directed by company regular Joe Harmston.
