Catch a screening of the one-woman show that inspired Fleabag in Melbourne


Classic Cinemas is hosting a special live screening of Fleabag, a week before its encore season.

This award-winning, one-woman show has taken the world by storm, and now, audiences have the chance to witness its hilarity on the big screen. Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the creator of the hit TV series Killing Eve, Fleabag follows the life of a woman who seems oversexed, emotionally unfiltered, and self-obsessed, but who is so much more than meets the eye. Catch the live screening on July 7.

Directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a 67-minute play that has been playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London. Its success has been so great that it was adapted into a television series that has captivated viewers across the globe. The play is a rip-roaring look at the life of a woman who is struggling with strained relationships, both with her family and her friends. On top of all that, she runs a guinea pig café that is struggling to stay afloat. But when Fleabag finds herself with nothing left to lose, she discovers an inner strength that she never knew she had.

The live screening at Classic Cinemas will take place on Friday 7 July at 7 pm, and each ticket will come with a complimentary glass of sparkling. This is a rare opportunity to see a play that has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide. As the New Yorker said, it is a “legitimately hilarious show,” and one that is not to be missed.

With its witty writing, impeccable acting, and powerful message, Fleabag is a must-see for anyone who loves great theatre. Don’t miss out on this chance to witness one of the most talked-about plays of recent years.

It all goes down on July 7. Grab tickets by heading here.
