Ms Waller-Bridge has just finished a sold-out run of Fleabag off-Broadway in New York at the Soho Playhouse, which earned several nominations, including Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance, a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show, and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance.
A spokesperson for Soho Theatre and Annapurna Theatre said: “It’s a privilege to have contributed to the journey of Fleabag with Phoebe thus far and we couldn’t be more pleased the show is returning home to London alongside DryWrite for a West End run.”
Fleabag began as a one woman show at the Soho Theatre before moving to Edinburgh Fringe 2013, receiving rave reviews.
It was subsequently adapted into a TV series, which has won awards including a BAFTA and a British Screenwriters’ Award.
Some of Ms Waller-Bridge’s other work includes penning the hit BBC TV series Killing Eve, starring Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh.
