Fleabag: The Scriptures


Her coat falls open. She only has her bra on underneath. She pulls out the little sculpture of the woman with no arms. It sits on her lap. Two women. One real. One not. Both with their innate femininity out.
A series like no other, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s multi-award winning Fleabag electrified viewers with its startlingly original blend of knife-edge comedy, moving drama and bitingly sharp dialogue.Now, for the first time, Fleabag: The Scriptures brings together the complete filming scripts of Fleabag series one and two, annotated with never-before-seen stage directions, as well as brand new writing from Phoebe Waller-Bridge.One of the most critically acclaimed writers working today, Phoebe Waller-Bridge adapted Fleabag for the BBC from her own, award-winning, 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe one-woman play. Chronicling the life and relationships of a woman who is, by turns, hilarious, mischievous, sexually voracious, emotionally bruised, angry and utterly relatable, Fleabag became a beacon for a new standard of British drama.
Portraying not only its protagonist, but a whole cast of flawed, failing and recognisable supporting characters, with unflinching honesty, it is the work of an author, playwright and dramatist of exceptional skill.Published as Waller-Bridge reprises her role in a sold-out 30-date run of the Fleabag one-woman play (starting 20 August 2019 and broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End on 12 September 2019) Fleabag: The Scriptures is a record of a cultural landmark, an essential collector’s edition and a must for any series fan.
