David Suchet –
Poirot and More, A Retrospective
York Theatre Royal, Wed 13 Oct, 3 & 8pm
Sir David Suchet makes his eagerly awaited return to UK stages in Poirot and More, A Retrospective this autumn, following a successful tour of Australia and New Zealand in early 2020. He will retrace his steps as a young actor, visiting more than 20 theatres across the UK, coming to York Theatre Royal on 13 October for two performances.
Poirot and More, A Retrospective looks back fondly at David’s illustrious career, sharing 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.
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.’
For over 25 years David has captivated millions worldwide as Agatha Christie’s elegant Belgian detective. Beyond Poirot, 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 (The Merchant of Venice, Separation, Oleanna, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Amadeus, All My Sons and The Price) and in 2020 was knighted for services to drama and charity.
