Audition Description

Breakfast at Tiffany's is Truman Capote's best-loved work of fiction and arguably one of the finest American novellas. Set in Manhattan's Upper East Side, during the final years of World War II, it documents the story of a young writer's fascination with, and affection for, his charming and troubled neighbor, the unorthodox Holly Golightly. The simple, linear narrative of Breakfast at Tiffany's provided Capote with the perfect vehicle to refine his characteristically minimal, naturalistic prose style, marking the novella as a transition phase between the author's more elaborate earlier writings and the documentary-style realism of his next major work, the non-fiction masterpiece In Cold Blood.


Audition Preparation:
- Please bring a headshot and resume to the audition.

  • Role #1 - Fred Barnes

    Holly\'s beloved brother, who does not appear in the narrative action. Holly describes him as \"sweet\", \"vague\", \"slow\", and over six feet tall, a height she attributes to his affection for peanut butter. Holly calls the narrator \"Fred\", as he reminds her of her brother. A soldier in the U.S. military, Fred is killed in overseas action halfway through the novella, a tragedy that causes Holly great grief. After he dies, Holly never mentions her brother again, and stops calling the narrator \"Fred\".

  • Role #2 - Holly Golightly

    The main character of the novella. At the time the narrator meets her, she is eighteen years old, thin, and has unconventionally short, boyish hair. A child bride who escaped her impoverished Texas roots at the age of fourteen, Holly makes a living as a companion to various wealthy and important men, who lavish her with money and expensive presents. As her name suggests, she is flighty and unstable. With the aid of the narrator, Holly escapes New York after she has been arrested for conspiracy with a Mafia-backed narcotics ring, and begins a new life in South America.

  • Role #3 - Joe Bell

    The owner of a bar located around the corner from the apartment building in which the narrator and Holly Golightly lived. He appears to be a homosexual, and prefers pursuing esoteric interests in dogs, radio soap operas, and Gilbert and Sullivan, over social interaction. Fascinated with Holly, he helps her flee the authorities following her arrest, despite his initial reluctance to get involved in the escape. He passes along a photo of an African carving that resembles Holly to the narrator twelve years after he had last seen her.

  • Role #4 - Sapphia Spanella

    Often referred to by the narrator as \"Madame Spanella\". Another tenant in the brownstone occupied by the narrator and Holly, a \"coloratura\", or soprano, who enjoys regular roller-skating. Spanella often calls Holly a whore, and brings an eviction petition against her. Later, Spanella directs the authorities to Holly when they are seeking to arrest her. \"Sapphia\" is a variation on the word Sapphic, a common euphemism for lesbian. Despite what her name implies, Spanella appears to be a misogynist, accepting the same disruptive behavior in Quaintance Smith that she despised in Holly.

    Another tenant in the brownstone apartment building in which the narrator and Holly live. A photographer for a popular picture magazine, it is implied that Yunioshi is attracted to Holly. To placate Yunioshi when he is upset at her for ringing his doorbell late at night when she has lost her key, Holly suggests she will let him take compromising photos of her. On a trip through Africa, when Yunioshi discovers an African man who has a carving that resembles Holly, he tries to buy it for a large amount of money and goods. Yunioshi also photographs the model Mag Wildwood for a major magazine shoot.

  • Role #6 - Rusty Trawler

    A much-publicized millionaire who is the companion of Holly, and, later, the husband of model Mag Wildwood. Rusty became tabloid fodder at a young age when his parents died, leaving him their fortune. His godfather was arrested on charges of sodomy. As an adult, Rusty continued the family tradition of scandal with his three tumultuous marriages, all ending in divorce. The narrator describes Rusty as infantile in appearance and behavior, which Holly suggests is a projection of Rusty\'s repressed homosexual nature. He is hospitalized in the Florida Keys when he is assaulted by a group of young men, and marries Mag unexpectedly shortly thereafter.

  • Role #7 - O.J. Berman

    Holly\'s former talent agent. The narrator meets him at one of Holly\'s parties, where he shares the story of his unsuccessful attempts to transform Holly, whom he calls a \"real phony\", from a teenage runaway to a Hollywood starlet. He later reads the narrator\'s writing, and is unimpressed by its emphasis on description and socially marginal characters, which he feels will not \"sell\" with a wide audience. When Holly is arrested, Berman hires her a top lawyer on the condition that his name not be connected with the scandal.

    Holly\'s on-again, off-again friend with whom she briefly shares her apartment. A model with a pronounced stutter and extravagant style of dress, the reader is introduced to Mag at Holly\'s party, which she attends uninvited. Holly implies to her guests that Mag has VD, after which Mag insults Holly and then passes out on the apartment floor. Mag describes herself as a \"very conventional person\" and is uncomfortable with Holly\'s frank discussions of sex. Hospitalized for sunburn in Key West, she suspects Holly of having an affair with her fiance, Jose, with whom Holly takes off to Havana. Holly deflects Mag\'s suspicion by telling her she is a lesbian, which provokes her to reject Holly. Mag later marries Rusty Trawler, and refuses to help Holly when she is arrested.

Doc reveals the true details of Holly\'s early life, claiming that he unofficially adopted Holly when she and her brother had run away from the foster home they had been placed in following their parents\' deaths. A widower with four children, Doc married Holly when she was fourteen, and was despondent when she escaped shortly thereafter. Upon their reunion, Holly sleeps with Doc again, but insists he return to Texas, alone, the next morning. Doc sends Holly the telegram that informs her of Fred\'s death.

    The fiancee of Mag Wildwood and, later, Holly Golightly. Jose is an important Brazilian politician who aspires to the presidency of his country. He is cultured, well-dressed, and attractive. Holly admits that Jose is not her ideal lover, but is happy to be having her first \"non-rat romance\". He appears to love Holly, but remains protective of his high social and political status. When Jose impregnates Holly, he makes arrangements to marry her in Brazil, but rejects her when he discovers she has been arrested. Highly concerned about his public image, he sends his cousin to retrieve his possessions from Holly\'s apartment and notifies Holly of his departure via a short, albeit heartfelt, letter.
