Does art imitate life or life imitate art? Either way, life itself becomes the basis forWishful Drinking, a one-woman show penned and performed by none other than the remarkable Carrie Fisher. Staging her life’s experiences in the World Premiere spotlight of the Geffen Playhouse, Fisher narrates the episodes of her chaotic life with brutal honesty and banter: from her unusual childhood as the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher to her involvement with a little movie called Star Wars, from her marriage to Paul Simon to the successes of her novels and screenplays, from her struggles with substance abuse and mental illness to the bliss of being a mother…to a teenager.
