The first in the Theater club one-woman play “Fleabag“ will be shown on November 17 at 7 p.m.! James McAvoy called Phoebe Waller-Bridge ‘a genius and a national treasure’, and Daniel Craig asked her to rewrite James Bond script of the future. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a philosopher with a filthy mouth: the play will make you remember your own dark sides, selfishness, irreparable mistakes, loneliness and finding your place in the world.
“I have a horrible feeling I am a greedy, perverted, selfish, apathetic, cynical, depraved, morally bankrupt woman who can’t even call herself a feminist.” A one-woman play by British star, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, started out as a ten-minute sketch and developed into a two seasons TV-show. This is the story of a witty, sex-obsessed, prone to both self-destruction and good impulses of a thirty-year-old woman attempting to navigate modern life in London.
London, the atmosphere of small cafe, the house of a rich father – Phoebe Waller-Bridge manages to create all the scenery inside the heads of the audience. Standing on the only material component of the scenery – a spotlight stool, she is connected with the audiences on a deep, emotional level: she makes you laugh, then cry, then freeze in tension. As a result, not just a hilarious series of sketches from a brilliant actress is born, but a sharp monologue about the dark sides of each person, loneliness and the search for a vocation. “We all have this Fleabag inside that says and does inappropriate things,” Waller-Bridge says.
