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’.
All about us: We are a group of volunteers based in and around St. Albans working to fundraise, campaign and support the work of Oxfam on various projects across the globe.
Our key activity is the organisation of the St. Albans Herts Hike, now becoming the “Oxfam Walk for Water” with a variety of routes starting from Heartwood Forest in Sandridge, St. Albans.
We are a local community group and welcome all new members to join us! We have various different activities throughout the year (with a particular focus on the lead up to our Hike in September) and welcome new volunteers to give as much (or as little!) time as you have available.
