David Suchet is Considering a Live Stage Adaptation of a Poirot Novel

Agatha Christie's Poirot

Earlier this week we reported that David Suchet strongly wants to complete filming adaptations of all of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot short stories and novels -- there are but six left to do --- and now The Stage is reporting that the actor is considering playing the character in a live stage adaptation.

“There is talk about this and I am in debate at the moment, not with them [the producers] but in my own mind, as to whether to take Poirot on to the stage,” he said. “There is part of me that is quite keen to do it. Jeremy Brett did it with Sherlock Holmes and had a very nice time, but Poirot has always been, for me, someone on the screen. However, I could be persuaded either way.”

Though there do not appear to be any immediate plans to move forward, Suchet has a definite idea on how it should be done -- should it happen.

“I don’t want to be in a country-house drama as Poirot on the stage,” he said. “If we did it, it would have to be a huge story with a fantastic set, and it would have to be really worthwhile doing.”
