Herdman says that readers are now much more open to enjoying stories in different forms than was previously the case. “The number of people consuming audio books has gone up by hundreds of per cent in the last couple of years,” she said. “Parts of Lincoln in the Bardo, which won the Man Booker Prize [in 2017], are written as a script. We’ve had Sabrina, a graphic novel, on the Booker list. I feel people are now up for devouring anything that’s a good story – audio, graphic novels, experimental fiction and screenplays.” Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s critically acclaimed, utterly unique series Fleabag took the world by storm with its piercing dialogue, ruthlessly dry wit, and deeply human drama. In Fleabag: The Scriptures, Waller-Bridge brings together for the first time the filming scripts of the first and second seasons, complete with the original stage directions as well as exclusive commentary on her creative process and the making of the series. Now recognized as one of today’s most essential voices, she delivers powerful insights into her now-iconic protagonist: the hilarious, emotionally damaged, sexually unapologetic woman who can make viewers laugh, cry, and cringe in a single scene.When Waller-Bridge was trying to convince Scott to join the cast, she met him for coffee and ended up talking for four hours.

Fleabag’s Quaker scene was filmed in the same place they met that day. 10. Fleabag’s ending includes a nod towards its editor Fleabag is lying in bed with her computer in her lap, eatingpizza.

The theatre show was then adapted into the popular series in 2016, for which Waller-Bridge received a BAFTA Award for Best Female Comedy Performance after the TV series was a hit with both critics and the public alike. The third thing is books, and, in case you are somehow, mercifully new here, I don't like those too often either. It’s been announced that this will be the last time Waller-Bridge will perform the part on stage. When can I read it?Fleabag: The Scriptures includes new writing from Phoebe Waller-Bridge alongside the filming scripts and the never-before-seen stage directions from the Golden Globe, Emmy and BAFTA winning series. Bottom line: What is there to say? Watch Fleabag. Read this. Or don't and be substantially less happy than you could be otherwise. See if I care. Waller-Bridge says Gary Dollner, Fleabag’s editor, deserves a lot of credit for the series’ success. As a “small tribute to a total hero”, they included a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Easter Egg in the series’ very last scene, in which Fleabag waits at a bus stop. The name of the bus stop? “Dollner Avenue”.
