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