"'Black Coffee,' by Agatha Christie, already creaked when it was written in 1929. It is full of clichés and the progress of detection is slow going. The Parkside Players could not rescue 'Black Coffee' from its pedestrian plotting. As for the acting, I think the actor who played the corpse aced the role. You will need a gallon of black coffee to stay awake during this play, which has not aged well. What passed as sophisticated detective techniques back then have no place in the modern world."
