Falling asleep in the Theatre
It’s not often I read about non-narcoleptic people who struggle to keep awake. This article describes the occasional difficulty the theatre goer sometimes face in staying awake during a performance. How interesting also how the journalist makes the connection from falling asleep in public – to public failure – people will notice you!

Why is the act of sleeping in public so loaded with failure, shame and guilt?
