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.
That’s the plot for Agatha Christie’s “Black Coffee,” which runs through March 28, on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. (March 8, 15 and 22 only) at Theatre Suburbia, at 4106 Way Out West Dr., Suite N.
Theatre Suburbia is Houston’s longest running all-volunteer playhouse in Northwest Houston, celebrating its 59th season of providing quality, live theatre to Houston-area audiences. It is located near the intersection of West 43rd Street and Old Hempstead Highway.
