Hannah Moscovitch, playwright, interview

Toronto Star:

"I am not sober at openings. It is so extreme an event, you don't want to be conscious. On the first opening of Essay, I arrived in a heightened state close to euphoria and I didn't hear anything anyone said. I took a really big dose of ibuprofen codeine and I threw up a couple of times. And that's why most playwrights don't go to openings."
