Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the classic tale of Holly Golightly written by Truman Capote and so memorably portrayed by Audrey Hepburn in the iconic 1961 film, is being given a new lease of life as a stage play with music in a sparkling, sophisticated production.
The show, starring Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners, Dads Army) as Holly, Matt Barber (Downton Abbey) as Fred and Victor McGuire (the sit-coms Trollied and Bread) as Joe Bell, is at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from May 9 until May 14.
Adapted by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony and Olivier Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg and directed by Nikolai Foster, this tale of vivacious, good-time girl Holly Golightly and her fantastical existence in 1940s New York City, is told through the eyes of a young writer.
Based on Truman Capote’s beloved masterwork, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is set in New York in 1943.
Fred, a young writer from Louisiana, meets Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl. Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred. But Fred is poor, and Holly’s other suitors include a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil. As war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with Fred – just as her past catches up with her.
With memorable songs from the era, this stylish production is set to capture the hearts of audiences and sparkle like a diamond in a Tiffany’s window.
Tickets are priced from £14 - £32.50.
