"Black Coffee" by Agatha Christie, with Hercule Poirot--Freeport Players

Agatha Christie’s first play, “Black Coffee,” featuring Hercule Poirot, will be onstage at Freeport Performing Arts Center on Sept.17-19 and Sept. 24-26. Sir Claud Amory has invented a dangerous weapon, and the formula is missing. Then a murder occurs. The family members, guests, and staff gathered at the manor house all have motive and opportunity for theft and murder. Who did it? The incomparable Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, and his friend, Captain Hastings, arrive, and Poirot’s “little grey cells” are put to the test. While gallantly giving credit to Inspector Japp of Scotland Yard, Poirot cleverly solves the mystery. With dashes of comedy and romance, Christie’s play creates a superb theater experience. Just the thing for a return to the stage after a long absence.

Shows are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm, and Sunday at 2 pm. For tickets to this fascinating whodunit, go to www.fcponline.org.
