ADA – ECU SCREENS wraps its fall season with “Fleabag”, the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the hit BBC/Netflix series starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
“Fleabag” airs at 7 p.m. Tuesday, December 3, at the Raymond J. Estep Multimedia Center in the Bill S. Cole University Center. The recorded live production is open to the public and tickets are $10 for community members. Tickets for ECU students are $5.
Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Killing Eve”), “Fleabag” is a rip-roaring look at “some sort of woman” living her “sort of life.” Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, the New Yorker deems “Fleabag” a “legitimately hilarious show.” Other reviewers agree that Phoebe Waller-Bridge is “funny, vibrant and blunt as a hammerhead” (New York Magazine), and her storytelling is “quirky and original” (Guardian).
The runtime for “Fleabag” is 67 minutes. The BBFCA has given the production a rating of 15 – higher than “PG-13” but not an “R” rating – as the play contains strong language, sexual references, and references to sexual harassment.
NT Live is the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre to cinemas around the world. ECU SCREENS will open its spring season with “The Tragedy of King Richard the Second” on January 17, 2020.
