After six nights of lost sleep, expect slowed…speech, tremors, memory lapse, confusion concerning one’s own identity, unusual behaviour, paranoia.
Hallucinations, OCD’s, ADHD, paranoia, psychoses, stress, depression & vampirism are some of the weird and wonderful sleep deprivation side affects explored in Kate Fitzroy’s Fringe comedy I.A. –Insomniac’s Anonymous.
Insomnia can make people go mad and is used as an instrument of torture. Sleep is vital to our survival, so what does happen when we don’t get our recommended 7-10 hours a night?
Catherine can’t sleep, she doesn’t know why and things are starting to get weird…She starts to forget who she is and strange changes are taking place. Who is the Vampire that keeps entering her room and why would a ANYONE want to stay awake as long as they can just to break the world record???
“Hi Catherine, come in and take a seat. So what seems to be the problem? You can’t sleep? You…how long has this been going on? Three days? You’ve been awake for three days? Ok…well…do you want to know how long I’ve been awake??? Since 1998!”
