Fleabag (NHB Modern Plays)

Front Cover
Nick Hern Books, Limited, May 14, 2014 - Drama - 48 pages

Phoebe Waller-Bridge's debut play is an outrageously funny but poignant look at responsibility and sexuality in today's young people.

The Fleabag bites back. A rip-roaring account of some sort of a female living her sort of life, this comic monologue for a female performer won numerous awards throughout 2014, including the Critics' Circle Most Promising Playwright Award, 2014 (Joint Winner); Fringe First Award, Edinburgh Fringe, 2013; Off West End Awards Most Promising Playwright, 2014; Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, Special Commendation, 2014. It was also nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre.

Fleabag premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2013, before going on to have two runs at Soho Theatre, London.

'sucker-punch funny... I've never seen a play quite like it' Scotsman

'frank and sometimes brutally funny... devastatingly good' The Times

'bitingly funny and genuinely moving... clever and tender and true' A Younger Theatre
