Following the award-winning stage show and BAFTA award-winning BBC series, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag will embark on a UK tour in 2018.

Directed by Vicky Jones and starring Maddie Rice (who also starred in the production during its Edinburgh Fringe run earlier this year), the show will tour to Wales Millennium Centre from 26 April to 5 May, Warwick Arts Centre from 8 to 12 May, Live Theatre, Newcastle from 22 to 26 May, Sheffield Crucible Studio, 30 May to 2 June and The Old Market, Hove from 5 to 9 June.

The show will also run at the Soho Theatre from 8 January to 18 January.

The monologue, which won a Fringe First Award in 2013, sees the titular character juggling a guinea pig themed café, career decisions and a torrent of social anxiety. When the six-part TV series ran on the BBC, it won the BAFTA Award for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme and currently holds an approval rating of 100 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Fleabag will tour to Cardiff, Warwick, Newcastle, Sheffield and Hove in 2018.
