For one last time, Fleabag will take the stage – and now there are new ways to get your hands on precious tickets.
Your queen and mine Phoebe Waller-Bridge can simply do no wrong these days. With Killing Eve a runaway success both here and in the US, and having been hired to spruce up the next James Bond script, she’s more dazzling than the summer sun. Come August, she’s taking things back to where they began, with a London stage performance of Fleabag, the one-woman show that launched the smash-hit TV show of the same name – and producers have just announced a more ways to get tickets, after the initial sale sold out in hours.
It’s time for ironic asides and self-loathing aplenty, as Fleabag heads to Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited run. Waller-Bridge will stage 30 performances of the critically-acclaimed show (which recently dazzled during a New York run) from August 20th to September 14th, and whilst tickets went on sale back in May – selling out in a hot minute, much to our chagrin – there are now more opportunities to catch it.
1. Get tickets to see ‘Fleabag’ in London via lottery
First of all, the show will keep 50 reserved seats for each performance, costing £15 each and allocated via a weekly lottery – much like the Hamilton lottery I frustratingly never won. Beginning on August 12th, each lottery will be open for two days, and will allocate tickets for the following week. It’ll be hosted by a ticketing app that isn’t ours (outrageous?) so frankly, you’ll have to Google it.
2. Queue up to get Fleabag tickets for £10 each morning
Should you want to place your faith in good old-fashioned waiting over luck, you can wait in line on the morning of the performance to grab the limited number of £10 tickets – available from 10 am each morning, though I suspect you’ll want to be in line a LOT earlier than that. #sleepingbagsforfleabags
3. Grab tickets to a live cinema screening of a Fleabag performance
Finally, there’s a National Theatre Live screening of Fleabag on September 12th, which is probably your most realistic way to catch the performance. Tickets for various participating venues will soon go on sale here.
Whichever way you wind up seeing it, you’re in for an oversexed, completely unfiltered TREAT of a show; as Fleabag has wrapped up on TV, this is your last chance to see everyone’s favourite guinea pig cafe-owning hot mess before she trots off into the sunset. Bon chance to you all (although I won’t hesitate to trample you to be first in that line)!
