SUCKER PUNCH FUNNY. I'VE NEVER SEEN A PLAY QUITE LIKE IT
MESMERISING STAGE PRESENCE, [A] PITCH-PERFECT PERFORMANCE AND GENUINELY ORIGINAL SUBJECT MATTER.
PENETRATING, PITCH-BLACK AND NASTILY BRILLIANT
BLUE, CONFRONTING, PAINFUL AND HILARIOUS. FLEABAG HAS A BITE THAT LINGERS
We bring DryWrite and Soho Theatre’s award-winning show to our Melbourne International Comedy Festival program.
Fleabag may seem over-sexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig themed café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
The inspiration behind the hit BBC series and new ABC TV Comedy series of the same name, this blisteringly funny solo show from Phoebe Waller-Bridge headlines Comedy Festival at The Coopers Malthouse.
Stumbling through a maze of social anxiety, disastrous job interviews and meaningless sex, Fleabag serves up an uproariously true account of some sort of a female living her some sort of a life.
