“Coming to New Zealand has always been an ambition and I am so delighted I now have the chance to visit but also to be performing on stage there for the very first time. I very much look forward to spending the summer in that part of the world on my Australia and New Zealand tour,” said David Suchet.

His television credits extend over 40 years and include some of Britain’s most esteemed programs from The Life of Freud, The Way We Live Now, Great Expectations and more recently Dr Who and Press. David has also starred in numerous international films including Harry and the Hendersons, The Bank Job and American Assassin, whilst also maintaining his impressive theatre career. He is an Associate Artist and Governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company having played Lago in Othello, Shylock in The Merchant of Venice, Caliban in The Tempest, Bolingbroke in Richard II and Angelo in Measure for Measure, all having been nominated for Olivier Best Actor Awards.

Further theatre credits include Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Ernest, Amadeus, Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Last Confession and Arthur Miller’s The Price.
