The Queen of Crime pays her annual visit to CCCT with the Hercule Poirot story Black Coffee.
Sir Claud Amory’s revolutionary new formula for a powerful explosive is stolen. Locking his house-guests in the library, Sir Claud switches off the lights to allow the thief to replace the formula, no questions asked. When the lights come on, he is dead, and Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings have to unravel a tangle of family feuds, old flames and suspicious foreigners to find the killer and prevent a global catastrophe.
Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8:00pm with Sunday matinees at 2:30pm. Opening night is January 12th.
