FLEABAG OPENING AS PART OF THE NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE SERIES AT CINEMA ART THEATER
See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series ‘Fleabag," broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End. Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge ("Fleabag," "Killing Eve") and directed by Vicky Jones.
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 café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose. Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker). [UK, 2019, 80 minutes, Rating: NR, age recommendation is 15+].
Peter Sobczynski of “eFilmCritic.com” writes, “The material is so good and enduring, even those familiar with the series will find themselves laughing as if they were hearing it all for the first time.” Sarah Knight Adamson of “Sarah’s Backstage Pass” exclaims, “The ultra-talented Phoebe Waller-Bridge's solo theater performance shines a light on female issues - taking us on an outrageous, hysterical roller coaster ride.”
National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking project that presents the best of British theatre live from the London stage on film to cinemas across the UK and around the world.
