Masterclass at the Theatre Royal Haymarket is looking for a young aspiring technician or stage manager who would relish the opportunity to work with the company and production team on Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Anna Friel and Joseph Cross.

Set in New York in 1943, a young writer from Louisiana, William ‘Fred’ Parsons meets Miss Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl. Everyone falls in love with Holly, including William - but he is poor, and Holly needs rich. Will she marry Rusty, playboy millionaire? Or José, the future president of Brazil? As war rages in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with William - and then her past catches up with her…..
