About us

May 5th 2012 saw the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Theatre Royal. To celebrate this milestone in the theatre’s history we put together a timeline of some of the highlights from these three decades which we hope you’ll enjoy remembering.

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, completely fascinated by this exquisite extrovert who every woman wants to be, and every man wants to be with.
