A one-woman show that inspired the hit TV series Fleabag is coming to the West End for one month only.

Writer and actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge's production will play at Wyndham's Theatre between 20 August and 14 September after finishing a sold-out run Off-Broadway in New York.

The BBC Three show, starring Waller-Bridge, Andrew Scott and Olivia Colman, ended last month after two series.

Like the series, the stage show follows a young woman through the ups and down of sex, family and self-obsession.

It found success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe then played at the Soho Theatre in 2013 before being adapted for the small screen.

Waller-Bridge, 33, also penned the script for the first series of cat-and-mouse BBC America thriller Killing Eve.

Last week, the James Bond series showrunners confirmed she had been brought in to liven up the script for the forthcoming Bond 25.

Tickets go on sale at 15:00 BST today.
