FLEABAG may have finished after only two series… but Phoebe Waller-Bridge is bringing her one-woman stage version to London’s West End.
The production — the basis for Fleabag on TV — will play at the Wyndham’s Theatre between August 20 and September 14 after finishing a sold-out run off-Broadway in New York.
Waller-Bridge (pictured) simply said: ‘Looooonddddooooonn!!’
Like the BBC Three comedy, co-starring Olivia Colman and Andrew Scott, the stage show follows a young woman through the ups and downs of sex, family and self-obsession. Tickets went on sale yesterday afternoon.
Fleabag first found success in a tiny venue at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013 — scooping a Fringe First award — then played at the Soho Theatre before being adapted for the small screen and winning Waller-Bridge, 33, a Bafta for best female comedy performance.
When Fleabag drew to a close last month, fans were devastated to learn she would not be writing a third series.
The writer/actor also penned the script for the first series of cat-and-mouse thriller Killing Eve, which returns this year starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer.
And last week the 007 producers confirmed she had been brought in to liven up the script for the forthcoming Bond 25.
