How to Get Tickets to ‘Fleabag’ in the West End
You’ve binged season one and two of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s acclaimed BBC and Amazon series, and you’re wishing you could go back in time and see her original one-woman show that started the phenomenon. Well, you’re in luck because Waller-Bridge is bringing “Fleabag” back to the West End for four weeks, and you can finally check this once-in-a-lifetime experience off your theatrical bucket list. TodayTix is hosting the official ticket Lottery, and you can score £15 tickets.
This non-stop monologue revolves around the trials of life in London for a young woman, called Fleabag, with an oversized amount of baggage and an unabashed approach to getting what she needs, whenever she wants it. Both hilarious and gut-wrenching, Waller-Bridge is a dynamic performer who wields humor like a double-edged sword of black comedy and brutal reality.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to get tickets to “Fleabag” in the West End.
What is “Fleabag” about?
“Fleabag” follows a young woman dealing with grief on a number of levels, but attempting to hold it all together in a desperate whirl. Fleabag recounts the particularly traumatic time following the passing of her mother and the alleged suicide of her best friend, the latter of which shapes much of the emotional depth of the character. Beyond the sexual openness on bold display, she stumbles her way into emotional vulnerability, leaving some audiences uncomfortable, but unavoidably engaged. Waller-Bridge deals with these often taboo topics with humor and heart, and her incisive societal commentary will leave you thinking beyond the final bow.
When and where is “Fleabag” running?
“Fleabag” is running 20 Aug. – 14. Sept. at the Wyndhams Theatre. The play originally premiered at the Soho Theatre before going to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013. Waller-Bridge returned to the Soho Theatre with the production and toured around the UK, South Korea, and Australia. The show recently played a sold-out run off Broadway in New York. The production at the Wyndham Theatre will be the last time Waller-Bridge will perform the role.
How do you get tickets to “Fleabag”?
While tickets are sold-out for the run, we’re hosting the exclusive digital Lottery for £15 tickets. There will be 50 tickets in prime seating locations (including some in the front row!) available for every performance.
How do you enter the “Fleabag” Lottery?
The “Fleabag” Lottery will take place once a week, so four times over the course of the four-week run. The Lottery opens for entries on Monday of each week at 9AM and closes for entries midday on Wednesday.
