An extra week has been added to the off-Broadway run of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag due to popular demand. The play will begin previews on February 27 at the SoHo Playhouse, with opening night set for March 7. The run is now scheduled to conclude on April 14, instead of April 7.

Fleabag debuted at the Edinburgh Festival in 2013 and won a Fringe First Award. It went on to play the Soho Theatre in London (revived in 2014 and 2016), before touring the UK (2015 and 2018), South Korea (2014), and Australia (2018), and an Edinburgh Festival revival as part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase (2017), produced by Waller-Bridge's production company, DryWrite, and Soho Theatre. It was later adapted into a BBC Television series in partnership with Amazon Prime in 2016.

Vicky Jones directs, with a creative team made up of Holly Pigott (scenic design), Elliot Griggs (lighting design), and Isobel Waller-Bridge (sound design).

Waller-Bridge is also the creator of the Emmy-nominated BBC America series Killing Eve, starring Sandra Oh, which is currently in production for its second season.
