Black Coffee - Jason Durr continues as Poirot

Jason Durr as Poirot

JASON Durr will continue his celebrated run as the diminutive detective Hercule Poirot in the touring production of Agatha Christie’s Black Coffee, which re-opens at New Victoria Theatre, Woking on August 14, 2014.

Durr will be joined by an all-star cast including rising starlet Georgina Leonidas, who shot to international fame playing the cursed Katie Bell in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2.

Leonidas had previously appeared on screen in Wizards Vs Aliens and Father Brown and played Little Cosette in the London stage production of Les Misérables.

Joining them will be Deborah Grant, who has starred in numerous television shows including Not Going Out, Peak Practice and Bergerac and Oliver Mellor, who for four years played Dr. Matt Carter in Coronation Street, before appearing as James Herriot in a UK tour of the stage show All Creatures Great and Small.

Also appearing are Agatha Christie Company regulars Gary Mavers, who is best known for playing heart-throb doctor Andrew Attwood in Peak Practice and Ben Nealon, perhaps best loved for his role as Capt. Forsythe in the ITV drama Soldier Soldier.

Further casting will be announced shortly.

In Black Coffee, 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, one man immediately senses a potent brew of despair, treachery, and deception amid the estate’s occupants. That man is Hercule Poirot.

Following New Victoria Theatre, Woking, the tour continues to Oxford Playhouse, Oxford (August 26 – 30); Wyvern Theatre, Swindon (September 1 – 6); Grand Theatre, Swansea (September 8 – 13); Princess Theatre, Torquay (September 15 – 20); Civic Theatre, Darlington (September 22 – 27); Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield (September 29 – October 4); Churchill Theatre, Bromley (October 6 – 11); Rose Theatre, Kingston (October 13 – 18); His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen (October 20 – 25); Floral Pavilion, New Brighton (October 27 – November 1); Theatre Royal, Glasgow (November 3 – 8); Lyceum Theatre, Crewe (November 10 – 15); Opera House, Manchester (November 17 – 22) and Derby Theatre, Derby (November 24 – 29).
