Rejoice Fleabag is back. Well sort of.
The hit Amazon Prime show, based on Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s one-woman play featuring the actor-writer as ‘Fleabag’, and the man who set fire to the internet as the Hot Priest, Andrew Scott, made for sensational television. Now you can stream the play on which the tv show is based.

For a donation starting from four pounds, you can watch Fleabag, the stage version (from the Soho Theatre website).
“See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show… captured by NT Live. Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge 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,” the website says. The proceeds from these donations go to charities fighting coronavirus. While the videos are already available in the UK and Ireland, they will be available for international streaming from April 10.
The icing really though is the surprise at the end of the video, tweeted by Fleabag.
