Black Coffee gives us a look at society recovering from World War I. Every person in the play, and they are persons not just characters, has been shaped by that experience. In the play she gives us, for the one time in her stage writing, Hercule Poirot.
Although this was her first mystery to appear on the stage Ms. Christie just got it all correct. Real people. Real Mystery. Real Motives. As you piece the puzzle together, just remember, things are not always as they seem.
Physicist Sir Claud Armory has a problem. He's created a new explosive and the formula has disappeared. To help him locate the missing formula, Armory contacts the Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot. But when Poirot arrives, the old man has a bigger problem: He's been murdered.
