Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve), 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.
Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, Fleabag has been deemed a “legitimately hilarious show” by the New Yorker. Other reviews agree that Phoebe Waller-Bridge is “funny, vibrant and blunt as a hammerhead” (New York Magazine), and her storytelling is “quirky and original” (Guardian).
The runtime for Fleabag is 67 minutes. The BBFCA has given the production a rating of 15—higher than “PG-13,” but not an “R” rating—as the play contains strong language, sex references, references to sexual harassment.
