National Theatre Live: Fleabag

Saturday, August 26 - Monday, August 28, 2023

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series FLEABAG, recorded from London’s West EndWritten 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.

Previously screened on March 13, 2020 at IFC Center.
