Celebration, Harold Pinter's final one-act play was shown in 2007 on British television More4. It focuses on two groups of diners at an expensive and trendy restaurant following a night at the theatre. At one table, an anniversary celebration is taking place. The men, who are brothers are also married to sisters, and have shadowy backgrounds, calling themselves 'strategy consultants.' At another table are a banker and his ditzy trophy wife. Floating between these tables are the restaurant's hosts and a chatty waiter (Stephen Rea) who name drops continually.

From Entertainment.timesonline.co.uk 8/30/08:
"Of course, that might also be one of the evils of web misinformation. And I mean evil. The question about Purple America already has him suspicious, and when I ask him if, as one internet fount of untruths currently has it, he was born Graham Rea, he finally sees red. “No, no, no,” he moans. “It’s untrue. I have no idea where these things come from. They say I went to a school I didn’t go to, they say I have a daughter – I haven’t got a daughter. Where does this stuff come from?'"
