NT Live: Fleabag

Broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, 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.

Why? 'Witty, filthy and supreme' ★★★★★ Guardian

Square Go

Max is a normal-ish kid in a normal-ish town. He spends his days daydreaming and hanging out with his weird wee pal Stevie Nimmo.

But when Max is called for his first Square Go, a fight by the school gates, it’s his own demons he must wrestle with first. A raucous and hilarious new play about playground violence, myths of masculinity and the decision to step up or run.

Featuring an original soundtrack by members of Frightened Rabbit. This is an unmissable collaboration between Fringe First-winning writers Kieran Hurley (Heads Up) and Gary McNair (A Gambler’s Guide to Dying).

Still No Idea

House presents Bunny With

Lisa and Rachael want to make a show, but there's a problem: they don’t have any ideas. So, who do they turn to? The Great British Public of course!

They make a pact. They'll go onto the streets, interview people, and whatever story the public come up with – that will be the show. No backing out, no changing what they don’t like. Deal.

Still No Idea is Lisa and Rachael's quest: a mischievous look at two friends searching for drama, action, and a story to tell. Part-verbatim theatre, part-confession, part-comedy sketch show with a bit of singing and dancing thrown in. Turns out getting the public to write your story is quite an adventure.

WHY? ‘Hilarious, clever and vital viewing’ ★★★★ The Stage

‘Combines comedy, honesty and protest to distinctive effect’ ★★★★ The Guardian

‘Pin sharp, provocative and hugely entertaining’ ★★★★ The Times on No Idea

This is a Relaxed performance.

Age Guidance 14+ years.

Wise Children

Recorded in 2018 at the York Theatre Royal.

Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new theatre production.

A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief, taking the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance – twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father – and greatest actor of his generation – Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all…
