"Like a good cup of coffee this play has lots of flavours ... not to be missed" - NE Lifestyle Magazine

"Then in comes Hercule Poirot, neat and exotic with his spats and ‘tache and masterfully brought to life by Jake Wilson Craw" - Only In Newcastle

"fun, entertaining, and it will keep you guessing to the end" - Break A Leg

Once again we ring in the New Year with a murder mystery from the Queen of Crime.

In a classic country house setting, Hercule Poirot and his sidekick Hastings must solve the riddle of a dead boffin and his stolen secret formula.

All the usual suspects are here: a woman with a secret in her past; a gaggle of heirs; the smooth secretary; a mysterious foreigner; and, of course, the butler. Christie masterfully choreographs her characters through a typically twisting, but engagingly riveting plot.

We guarantee that the coffee on sale in our foyer is completely safe – but the same can’t be said for those cups on stage…!
