Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s final performance of Fleabag will be screened in cinemas by National Theatre Live on September 12 and you can get tickets (if you act fast). However, there are also a few ways to get tickets to see the West End show live in person, too…
That’s right: Fleabag will be performed at Wydnham’s Theatre in the West End, and will be screened globally by the National Theatre Live, so you have a chance to see it wherever you are in the world.
But if you want to be in the audience, you’re in luck, as a new batch of tickets are about to drop very soon.
Written and performed by Waller-Bridge, and directed by Vicky Jones, this will be the final run of the show. It was first performed in 2013 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, followed by a run at Soho theatre and, after the TV show proved such a massive US hit, Broadway.
The National Theatre describe it as: “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 show has so far received a number of five star reviews from pretty much everyone, including the Guardian and the Telegraph, and New York Magazine. Essentially, it’s must-see stuff… if you’re lucky enough to wangle the tickets.
With that in mind, here’s a guide on how to see the stellar production. And remember, it’s your last chance, so good luck!
Where can I see the performance of Fleabag?
The performance will take place at Wyndham’s Theatre in the West End for 30 shows starting from 20 August. It will also be screened worldwide by the National Theatre Live at select participating venues on September 12. A list of venues are to be announced soon and you can find your closest one here.
When do tickets for Fleabag screenings go on sale?
The date for when screening tickets go on sale hasn’t been announced yet but they will be available soon and can be found here.
How can I get my hands on Fleabag theatre tickets, and how much will they cost?
Tickets for the performance already sold out months ago. However, there are additional tickets available thanks to two initiatives, including an online lottery, which will offer 50 tickets for every performance at £15 each, randomly allocated to the people who enter. Alongside this, a number of standing tickets will be available at the box office on the day of the performance for just £10.
Any tips for securing tickets?
- Keep an eye on the National Theatre Live website as tickets and venues are both ‘coming soon’.
- If you’re aiming to see a performance in person, they don’t start until August so you have time to plan ahead and get to the box office early on the day.
- There doesn’t seem to be a limit on how many times you can enter the ticket lottery, so it might be a good strategy to enter daily to maximise your chances.
