Phoebe Waller-Bridge first unveiled her hilarious, profane and emotionally probing one-woman play Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013. Since then, she has performed it in London, toured the UK, South Korea and Australia, and adapted it into an award-winning BBC series (later shown on Amazon Prime). Now, she's bringing it to NYC for an off-Broadway run in 2019.

The play, starring Waller-Bridge and directed by her long-time collaborator Vicky Jones, will be staged at SoHo Playhouse for five weeks; previews begin February 28th, 2019, opening night is March 7th, 2019, and it all ends Sunday, April 7th, 2019. "I can’t wait to bring the original FLEABAG to New York! It’s a dream come true," Waller-Bridge said in a press release.

The play centers on a depressed, sex-obsessed woman struggling to run her guinea pig café, dealing with her overbearing stepmother and anxious sister, and processing the fallout from a recent trauma. Narrated through her inner monologue, it juggles several tones masterfully, ping-ponging between witty, dirty, and psychologically affecting. As the character puts it in the first episode, she has “a horrible feeling” she’s "a greedy, perverted, selfish, apathetic, cynical, depraved, morally bankrupt woman who can’t even call herself a feminist."

Waller-Bridge, who also starred as the droid L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story, has no shortage of projects on the horizon. She's working on a second season of Fleabag that is supposed to come out in 2019, and she is the creator and writer of the Emmy-nominated series Killing Eve, which also has a second season coming next year.
