Description - Dumb Show by Joe Penhall

Barry's fifteen minutes of infamy are overdue, and when laughter's your living ...that's no joke. Courted at the end of his show by bankers John and Jane, TV star Barry believes he is to get the 5-star treatment that he deserves. However urged to provide a candid account of his off-stage life and views, the Barry that emerges is the least of the surprises in the tense game of power and manipulation that ensues.
