Fleabag, which recently wrapped up its sold-out, Drama Desk-nominated American premiere Off-Broadway, returns across the pond following hit engagements at London's Soho Theatre (2013, 2014, 2016) and two U.K. tours.

Written by and starring Waller-Bridge, with direction by Vicky Jones, the Fleabag is the story of an oversexed, grieving, disaster-attracting woman struggling to maintain her personal relationships and her guinea pig-themed cafe.

Fleabag debuted at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival, winning a Fringe First Award. The work was adapted into a series by BBC Television in partnership with Amazon in 2016, which will return for a second season this spring. As recently announced, Fiona Shaw and Kristin Scott Thomas guest star.

Waller-Bridge is also the creator and showrunner of the BBC America thriller series Killing Eve starring Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh. The show, based on Luke Jennings’ Codename Villanelle series, kicked off its second season April 7 on BBC America.
