Sir David Suchet visits York Theatre Royal this October

Sir David Suchet makes his eagerly awaited return to the stage in Poirot and More, A Retrospective, a production presented by Liza McLean, Andrew Kay And Jonathan Church Theatre Productions.

The show successfully toured Australia and New Zealand in early 2020, and now the show is coming to the UK! David Suchet will be visiting York Theatre Royal for two performances (3pm and 8pm) on Wednesday 13th October – and it’s sure to be an evening of entertainment not to be missed!

Poirot and More, A Retrospective looks back fondly at David’s impressive career, as David himself shares some of his most beloved performances in a new and intimate light. Geoffrey Wansell, journalist, broadcaster, biographer and co-author of Poirot and Me, will be joining David as interviewer in this unmistakably unique conversation with the actor behind the detective and the many characters David has portrayed on stage and screen over a career
spanning five decades. I saw him in the recorded live version of The Importance of Being Earnest and he really is one of the most exceptional actors!

For over 25 years David has captivated millions worldwide as Poirot, Agatha Christie’s elegant Belgian detective. In addition, David has graced the world’s stages bringing literary greats to life, including Shakespeare, Wilde, Albee and Miller and is celebrated for his portrayals of iconic roles such as Lady Bracknell, Cardinal Benelli, Joe Keller and Gregory Solomon.

David spent 13 years in the Royal Shakespeare Company and remains an Associate Artist. He is an Emmy award winner, a seven-time Olivier Award Nominee and in 2020 was knighted for services to drama and charity. Phew! If that doesn’t just sing ‘legend’, I don’t know what does.

David Suchet said: “Regional theatre has always been very close to my heart as it’s where my career started and was nurtured. To visit so many places that have meant so much to me during my 52 year career is wonderful. This show is my way of connecting and saying hello to people across the country after this terrible period and welcoming them back into the theatre. I am looking forward to sharing my memories, stories and favourite moments.”
