Phoebe Waller-Bridge's FLEABAG Announces Cancellation Line

Fleabag

The producers of Fleabag have announced a cancellation line for performances of the strictly limited and sold out engagement. Beginning one hour prior to curtain, cancellation tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be sold at full price ($125). The cancellation line is outside the SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street). Ticket availability is not guaranteed.

Annapurna Theatre presents the New York debut of the DryWrite and Soho Theatre production of Fleabag. Fleabag is written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, making her New York stage debut, and directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge's long-time collaborator Vicky Jones.

After its sold-out run in London, Phoebe Waller-Bridge's award-winning comedic play, comes to New York for 6 weeks only. The play that inspired the hit television series, 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 caf struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

FLEABAG debuted at the Edinburgh Festival in 2013 to rave reviews and won a Fringe First Award. It went on to play the Soho Theatre in London (revived in 2014 + 2016), before touring the UK (2015 + 2018), South Korea (2014) and Australia (2018) and an Edinburgh Festival revival as part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase (2017), produced by Waller-Bridge's production company DryWrite and Soho Theatre. The production also won The Stage Best Solo Performer Award, the Off West End Award for Most Promising New Playwright & Best Female Performance and was nominated for an Olivier Award.

FLEABAG was adapted into a BBC Television series in partnership with Amazon Prime in 2016 and earned Phoebe a BAFTA Award for Best Female Comedy Performance. The series was also nominated for a Gotham Independent Film Award, Television Critics Association Award and Critics Choice TV Award, among other accolades. The BBC and Amazon renewed the series for a second season, which will premiere in 2019.

Waller-Bridge also created and wrote the BBC America TV series Killing Eve starring Sandra Oh, which was nominated for two Emmy Awards and is currently in production for its second season.

FLEABAG is produced by Annapurna Theatre's Kevin Emrick and Skye Optican, David Luff and Patrick Myles, Barbara Broccoli, Patrick Catullo, Diana DiMenna, Daryl Roth, Eric Schnall, Jayne Baron Sherman, DryWrite, Soho Theatre, Francesca Moody for DryWrite and Associate Producer Bee Carrozzini.

The creative team for Fleabag features Holly Pigott (scenic design), Elliot Griggs (lighting design) and Isobel Waller-Bridge (sound design).

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Charlotte McBrearty are appearing with the permission of Actors' Equity Association. The Producers gratefully acknowledge Actors' Equity Association for its assistance of this production.
