FLEABAG

 

 

Popcorn proudly supports the West End production of Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge's award-winning play, directed by Vicky Jones.

 

Following a sold-out run in New York, Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge's award-winning comedic play, directed by Vicky Jones, comes home to London for 30 performances only from 20 August.

 

The play that inspired the hit television series, 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.

 

Don't miss your final chance to see this 'witty, filthy, supreme' show (The Guardian), running for a strictly limited season at the Wyndham's Theatre.

THE

SILENT MAN

A short film written and directed by Charlotte Colbert. It is very loosely based on the legendary grieving process of early 20th century painter Oskar Kokoschka from his great love Alma Malher through the figure of a homemade doll. Charlotte Colbert has reinterpreted the story in a contemporary context making it about a woman grieving a lost love through the figure of a life-size male doll. With Sophie Kennedy-Clark, Simon Amstell, Ben Miller and a surreal cameo by Cillian Murphy.

"Thrills, fantasies, the most surreal and moving short"
