Amazing news for Phoebe Waller-Bridge fans (let’s face it, who isn’t one?), as the filmed play of Fleabag will be available online to stream for the first time ever!

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, DryWrite, Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre, in partnership with National Theatre Live in London and Amazon Prime Video, have put the full show online.

Those of you in the UK and Ireland can watch Fleabag on the Soho Theatre On Demand website here for a minimum donation of £4. For two weeks from Friday 10 April, you’ll also be able to buy a 48-hour download of Fleabag on Amazon Prime Video for £4, and access will expand to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the US, so don’t panic if you’re further afield!

The proceeds from these streaming platforms will go to several charities, including the National Emergencies Trust and NHS Charities Together. Support will also go to arts charities and funds supporting those who work in theatre; Acting For Others as well as the new Fleabag Support Fund, will give grants of £2500 to freelance theatre workers most in need.

Later this week the Fleabag team will announce further details of the organisations in the US that will benefit from the proceeds raised.

Fundraising is already at £356,000, including a substantial donation from Phoebe Waller-Bridge herself, and this money has already been distributed to charities. You can donate directly to the GoFundMe here.

First performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, Fleabag is the one-woman play that the 2-season BBC series was based on. Featuring nothing more than Phoebe Waller-Bridge, a stool and a spotlight, this pared-down monologue returned to London 6 years after it’s debut to a sold-out run.

The play is nominated for two Olivier Awards this year – Best Actress and Best Entertainment or Comedy Play – for its run at Wyndham’s Theatre.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge said:

“I hope this filmed performance of Fleabag can help raise money while providing a little theatrical entertainment in these isolated times. Thank you to all our partners and to the creative team who have waived their royalties from this production to raise money for such vital causes in this unbelievably challenging situation.

“All money raised will support the people throughout our society who are fighting for us on the frontlines and those financially devastated by the crisis, including those in the theatre community. Thank you in advance to those who donate. Now go get into bed with Fleabag! It’s for charity! Px”

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
