About this show

Carrie Fisher's one-woman show chronicles her unusual childhood as the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, her rise to movie icon status as Star Wars' Princess Leia, her marriage to Paul Simon, the release of her hit movie Postcards From the Edge starring Meryl Streep, drug addiction, motherhood, having a child with a man who forgot to tell her he was gay, waking up next to a man who died not only in his sleep, "but in mine," and her ultimate triumph over adversity. In Wishful Drinking Fisher paints a rich portrait of a woman who has not only survived but flourished in the often chaotic and never predictable world of Hollywood.
