In Agatha Christie’s Black Coffee, the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot cunningly absorbs clues to solve the murder of Sir Claud Amory, an eccentric inventor of a new weapons formula. The cast is filled with the colorful, suspicious characters Christie takes delight in, and features a plot with fiendishly clever twists that are the trademark of the world’s greatest creator of murder mysteries. Black Coffee is Christie’s first play, initially produced in 1930.
