COMEDY FESTIVAL AT THE COOPERS MALTHOUSE

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 of the same name, this is a blisteringly funny solo show from Phoebe Waller-Bridge (star of the Netflix series Crashing). We bring her award-winning show to our Melbourne International Comedy Festival program.

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.
