Theatre

Fleabag

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Following the BAFTA award-winning BBC series, DryWrite and Soho Theatre bring you the acclaimed stage production of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s cult hit.

Fleabag may seem over-sexed, emotionally unfiltered and in denial, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig themed café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Stumbling through a maze of social anxiety, disastrous job interviews and meaningless sex, Fleabag serves up an uproariously funny and true account of some sort of a female living her sort of life.

Directed by Vicky Jones and starring Maddie Rice.

NOMINATED:
Olivier Award 2014
