The play that inspired the hit television series, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. 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.
Don't miss your final chance to see this 'witty, filthy and supreme... one-woman show' (The Guardian), running for a strictly limited season at the Wyndham's Theatre.
When it comes to raw authenticity onstage, few performers in recent years stand taller than Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the creator and star of “Fleabag,” the award-winning one-woman phenomenon. Overflowing with savage punchlines and a no-holds-barred approach to modern work, love, and sex (not necessarily in that order), the phrase “tour de force” pales for what Waller-Bridge brings to the stage. “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.
“Fleabag” gave birth to a wildly popular BBC series of the same name, which premiered in 2016. This dark comedy series has found a massive audience in both the UK and the United States, many of whom don't know that the show first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival back in 2013. Following that, it was staged at the Soho Theatre, produced by DryWhite, the theatre company opened by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and director Vicky Jones in their post-drama school years. After six revivals of “Fleabag” on the global stage, including sold-out runs in New York and London, as well as others in South Korea and Australia, Phoebe Waller-Bridge also confirmed that these 30 performances at Wyndham's will be the last for this monologue masterpiece.
“Fleabag” is far from Phoebe Waller-Bridge's debut on the London stage, with previous credits as Sorel Bliss in the Noel Coward Theatre's production of “Hay Fever” in 2011 and as Marian in “Mydidae” at the Soho Theatre in 2012.
The second season of “Fleabag” came out in April 2019, but the creator and star has announced that this will be the last season of the show; many critics have voiced their approval, announcing that it had the “perfect ending.”
The name Fleabag is never properly explained in the stage production, but Phoebe Waller-Bridge has said that the name comes from her own life. Her family called her “Flea” growing up.
Aside from Fleabag, you may recognise Phoebe Waller-Bridge from other popular television shows and movies, including “The Iron Lady,” “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” “Broadchurch,” “Bad Education,” and many more.
In addition to “Fleabag,” Phoebe Waller-Bridge created and starred in the Netflix series “Crashing” and also created the Emmy-nominated BBC series “Killing Eve,” starring Sandra Oh.
