Phoebe Waller-Bridge to star in final ever run of Fleabag in the West End
The play which spawned the hit BBC TV comedy will play its final ever run this summer
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is set to bring her one-woman show Fleabag to the West End, as she reprises the role on stage for its final ever run.
The play, which has previously run at the Soho Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe and most recently in New York, was adapted as a BBC television series, which garnered a cult following and mass critical acclaim over its two series which came to an end earlier this year.
Directed by Vicky Jones, the play delves into the life of one woman dealing with her friendships, family, and sex drive. Waller-Bridge has won Stage and Fringe First Awards, as well as receiving nominations for Olivier and Evening Standard Awards, while the TV series has won BAFTA and Critics Choice awards.
Fleabag will play at the Wyndham’s Theatre from 20th August to 14th September, with an official opening night on 28th August.
Announcing the West End transfer of the production, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre said: "It’s a privilege to have contributed to the journey of Fleabag with Phoebe thus far and we couldn’t be more pleased the show is returning home to London alongside DryWrite for a West End run."
Waller-Bridge's press statement is simply: "Looooonddddooooonn!"
The production will have designs by Holly Pigott, lighting by Elliot Griggs, sound design by Isobel Waller-Bridge.
