Fleabag has been a huge success

Phoebe wrote the story of Fleabag for the stage and first performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; the show was so well received that the actress and writer brought it to the Soho Theatre in 2013. After its clear success in stage format, it was then commissioned for a BBC series which first graced our screens in 2016, and then again for its second series in 2019.

Apart from making us all cry with laughter, the TV show boasted a whole host of stars, including Phoebe as Fleabag herself, Sian Clifford as her sister, Claire, Olivia Colman as their hilariously hateable godmother-turned-step-mum, and Andrew Scott as the now infamous Hot Priest. The second series was so successful that it went on to win a number of awards and accolades from prestigious ceremonies such as the BAFTAs, the Primetime Emmy Awards and the Golden Globes.
