Dumb Show (Methuen Modern Plays)by Joe Penhall
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Sensational new play from a multi-award winning writer that opened at the Royal Court September 2004.
