David Suchet has been a stalwart of British stage and television for fifty years. But there’s one story he’s never told until now: his own.

From Shakespeare to Oscar Wilde, Freud to Poirot, Edward Teller to Doctor Who, Questions of Faith to Decline and Fall, right up to 2018’s Press, David Suchet has done it all. Throughout this spectacular career, David has never been without a camera, enabling him to vividly document his life in photographs. In this live In Conversation event, David will tell the story of his remarkable life and career to Hannah MacInnes, and showcase his wonderful photographs with revelatory and engaging commentary.

As well as his work, David will talk about his London upbringing and love of the city, family life with his beloved wife Sheila and their two children, his views on religion, his Jewish roots, his love of photography (inherited from his grandfather, James Jarche, the famous Fleet Street photographer), canal boats, music and much more.

Throughout the talk, David will illustrate his story with photos from his childhood and of his family, behind the scenes shots from his television and theatre work as well as portraits of well-known figures such as Peter Capaldi.

Evocative and insightful, this is David Suchet as you’ve never seen him before – from behind the lens.
