Win tick­ets to en­joy Break­fast at Tif­fany’s and pre-show meal at the Wy­combe Swan

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

HERE’S a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to win a pair of tick­ets to the press night of the sparkling stage pro­duc­tion of Break­fast at Tif­fany’s at Wy­combe Swan on Tues­day June 7. Our lucky win­ner and their guest will not only win tick­ets to the press night, but also a show pro­gramme and a meal for two be­fore the show with wine at Wy­combe Swan Bar & Kitchen. Writ­ten by Tru­man Capote and mem­o­rably por­trayed by Au­drey Hep­burn in the iconic film, this stage pro­duc­tion stars Emily Atack as Holly Go­lightly, a vi­va­cious, good-time girl in New York in the 1940s. Fred, a young writer from Louisiana, falls in love with Holly, as ev­ery­one does, how­ever, he is poor, whilst 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.

Emily, best known for her role as the ob­ject of Will’s at­ten­tions Char­lotte in the award-win­ning E4 series The In­be­tween­ers, said: “I am so flat­tered and hon­oured to be play­ing Holly Go­lightly; to take such an iconic role as my stage de­but is both in­cred­i­bly ex­cit­ing and chal­leng­ing.

“I can’t wait to get started and plan to have as much fun with it as pos­si­ble.

“I’m very much look­ing for­ward to get­ting in front of an au­di­ence and go­ing on this jour­ney with them every night.”

Emily re­places Ver­ity Rushworth who had to with­draw from the UK tour as she is ex­pect­ing her first child.

Di­rec­tor of Break­fast at Tif­fany’s, Niko­lai Fos­ter, said: “I am de­lighted Emily is join­ing Pixie Lott to share the role of Holly Go­lightly in our pro­duc­tion of Break­fast at Tif­fany’s.

“It’s a thrilling prospect for all of us to be work­ing with ac­tors who are per­fectly suited to the role and will en­cour­age a new generation of the­atre­go­ers to share Capote’s beau­ti­ful story.”

The show also stars Matt Bar­ber (At­ti­cus Aldridge in Down­ton Abbey) as Fred, Vic­tor McGuire (Trol­lied and Bread) as Joe Bell, Robert Calvert as Doc, Naomi Cranston as Mag, Char­lie De Melo as José, Tim Frances as Rusty Trawler/Edi­tor at 21, An­drew Joshi as Yu­nioshi, Me­lanie La Bar­rie as Mme Spanella, and Se­van Stephan as OJ Ber­man/Dr Gold­man, with Katy Allen and Andy Watkins.
