About the play: In a luxury hotel, hot-shot private bankers John and Jane are plying TV personality Barry with equal parts outrageous flattery and vintage champagne, both of which he finds irresistible. The pair cajole him into revealing some of the seamier aspects of his off-camera life”. The Guardian says that ‘Penhall simply exposes the seamy side of tabloid journalism and suggests its readers are complicit in its infectious celebrity-baiting’.
