San Jose Repertory Theatre Presents a Jonathan Reinis Production with Jamie Cesa and Eva Price in association with Berkeley Repertory Theatre

Check out hilarious clips from the show on our Production Notes page.

Carrie Fisher is the life of the party with Wishful Drinking, an uproarious look at her Hollywood hangover.  Fisher tells a true and intoxicating story with her trademark wit and humor. From starring as Princess Leia to penning the bestseller Postcards from the Edge, from having Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher as parents to marrying and divorcing Paul Simon… this Tinseltown toddler lands among the stars when she’s cast in a little movie called Star Wars. But it isn’t all sweetness and light sabers: as a single mom, she also battles addiction, depression, mental institutions, and that awful hyperspace hairdo. Fisher’s tale is a tabloid vivant the Los Angeles Times calls a “Beverly Hills yard sale of juicy anecdotes.” Carrie Fisher’s Wishful Drinking is an uproarious look at a Hollywood hangover and a chance to get Carried Away!
