at the Haymarket , London

By Roger B. Harris
Published May 16 2007

  Michael Jayston and David Suchet

David Suchet will trade in his little gray brain cells for a Cardinal's cloak, when he stars in Roger Crane's new thriller, The Last Confession. The show, which premiered recently at the Chichester Festival will have a brief regional tour before heading into the Theatre Royal Haymarket on June 28. It will open on July 4 for a limited 12 week run.

The play deals with the mystery surrounding the death of Pope John Paul 1, after only a month as Pope. What really happened and who stood to benefit from the Pope's demise? Only Cardinal Benelli( Suchet), can make sense of all the intrigue swirling around the Vatican. Along the way, Crane's thriller tracks the dramatic tensions, crises of faith and political infighting inside the Papal See.

Mr. Suchet is probably best known to audiences for his TV portrayal of Agatha Christie's Belgian detective M. Poirot. But, he's had a long and successful theatre career. He's appeared in Amadeus ( London and New York), Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Once in a Lifetime, Oleanna and Man and Boy, among others.

Joseph Mydell, who was in the London cast of Angels in America, will join Mr. Suchet in The Last Confession.
