Photos from the March 7 opening of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag have been released. The run concludes April 14 at the Soho Playhouse.

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.

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.
