Phoebe Waller-Bridge is to perform Fleabag on stage for the last time as part of a newly announced West End run.

The play will run at Wyndham’s Theatre from August 20 to September 14, with press night on August 28.

Directed by Vicky Jones and written by Waller-Bridge, the West End run of Fleabag is produced by DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre.

Fleabag originally previewed at Soho Theatre before its Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2013.

It was then revived by DryWrite and Soho Theatre in 2014 and 2016, as well as touring the UK, South Korea and Australia, and a revival ran at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 as part of a British Council showcase.

The play was adapted into a BBC Three Television series in partnership with Amazon Prime Video in 2016, earning Phoebe a BAFTA award for best female comedy performance.

A statement from Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre said: “It’s a privilege to have contributed to the journey of Fleabag with Phoebe thus far and we couldn’t be more pleased the show is returning home to London alongside DryWrite for a West End run.”
