National Theatre Live: Fleabag
Opened Friday, September 20
We are proud to be able to present this unique program to IFC Center audiences. For everyone who missed the sold-out run at SoHo Playhouse and isn’t flying to London for the limited presentation there, the National Theatre has recorded the September 12, 2019 live performance of FLEABAG, which we will start presenting on-screen Thu Sep 19. For at least the next 12 months, this FLEABAG program will only be available in cinemas — it won’t be available anywhere else, not online, not on demand, not on television, and not on home video.
See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series FLEABAG, recorded from London’s West End. Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, FLEABAG is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life in this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (The New Yorker).
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.
Tickets to our regular series of National Theatre Live programs are $25 general admission and $23 for IFC Center Members. For this special week-long engagement of National Theatre Live: Fleabag, we have been able to secure special pricing of $20 for general admission, $17 for seniors, and $15 for IFC Center Members.
