Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre have confirmed that the critically acclaimed show will return to London this August for a strictly limited four week run.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and directed by Vicky Jones, the one woman show has just completed a successful run Off-Broadway in New York as well as premiering its second season on BBC Three.

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.

Fleabag was originally produced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Vicky Jones and producer Francesca Moody’s company DryWrite. It previewed at Soho Theatre before its Edinburgh Festival debut in 2013, winning rave reviews and a Fringe First Award. It returned to play the Soho Theatre in London that autumn and was revived by DryWrite and Soho Theatre in 2014 and 2016, as well as touring the UK (2015 and 2018), South Korea (2014) and Australia (2018) and an Edinburgh Festival revival as part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase (2017). It was adapted into a television series by BBC Three in partnership with Amazon Prime Video in 2016 and earned Phoebe a BAFTA Award for Best Female Comedy Performance.

Fleabag will play at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 20th August until the 14th September.
