Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and directed by Vicky Jones.
A monologue first performed at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Fleabag is now on stage in London for the very last time – 30 performances only, all of which sold out months before opening night.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the writer-creator of two of the leading contenders for major Emmy awards in 2019 - the comedy Fleabag (11 nominations including Best Comedy, Best Writing for a Comedy Series and Best Directing) and the drama Killing Eve (9 nominations) - in addition to being nominated herself for best actress in a comedy.
Following a number of small TV and film appearances, including playing Margaret Thatcher's secretary in The Iron Lady, Phoebe’s big breakthrough came in winning the Fringe First Award at Edinburgh in 2013 with her one-woman play, Fleabag. The TV adaptation of Fleabag sent her career soaring and the series has recently been awarded 6 Emmy Awards:
