Fleabag is getting her moment to shine on the big screen come September 12 when Fleabag is broadcast through NT Live from the West End.

The solo show, written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, follows a self-absorbed young Londoner known only as Fleabag struggling to sort out her life. The show also inspired a TV series of the same name, which earned 11 Emmy nominations July 16 including Best Comedy Series and Best Leading Actress for Waller-Bridge.

The play celebrated a sold-out run Off-Broadway in New York City earlier this year, having debuted at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival, winning a Fringe First Award. A run at London's Soho Theatre followed, with return engagements in 2014 and 2016 and a U.K. tour in 2015 and 2018. As previously reported, performances will begin at Wyndham's Theatre in the West End August 20 through September 14.

Tickets will go on sale soon. For more information, visit
