Fleabag By Phoebe Waller-Bridge Directed by Vicky Jones Starring Maddie Rice

Wed 30 May – Sat 2 June 7.45pm 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 self-obsessed, 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. ★★★★★ ‘Sucker punch funny…I’ve never seen a play quite like it.’ The Scotsman ★★★★★ ‘Finely polished and filthy as ever’ The Guardian Studio Theatre From £16.00

World Première ‘I know it gets tense the nearer we get to combat. And I know you lassies haven’t had face to face with the enemy yet.’ Kate Bowen’s taut thriller features the first generation of British women in close combat roles. Privates Finlay and Cormack - holed up on a military base in the heat; waiting, frustrated. Then a new arrival creates new problems. Captain Sands - she’s interrogated hostile men the world over. But you never stop having to prove yourself.
