Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Off-Broadway Debut
A name becoming in increasingly orientated with incisive, razor-sharp writing, intelligent comedy and the blackest of humours, Phoebe Waller-Bridge first made waves with her no-holds-barred account of sexual liberation and womanhood Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013, going on to create and star in the smash hit BBC sitcom based on the show and most recently, write and produce the critically acclaimed, Emmy nominated BBC America drama Killing Eve. Don't miss the tour-de-force performer as she brings her one woman show, directed by frequent collaborator Vicky Jones, to New York's SoHo Playhouse for a strictly limited run, February 28th through to April 7th 2019.
The jaw-dropping monologue sees its titular character embody an unusual mix of eloquence, sophistication and self-loathing whilst juggling a poorly conceived guinea pig-themed cafe, career decisions and social anxiety. Fleabag's extreme candour about sex and filthy parlance regularly elicits gasps from the audience as she waxes lyrical about bodily functions and a dark family saga that makes the Kardashians seem well adjusted, making for a thought-provoking dramedy that heralds a bold new voice in stage and screen.
