Play publishers Nick Hern has announced a special edition of the original Fleabag script.

A new edition of the original play's script will be published at the end of August.

As well as the full script of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's original one-woman Fringe theatre hit, the new edition promises sixteen additional pages of "never-before-seen colour photos, and exclusive bonus content by Phoebe, director Vicky Jones and key members of the creative team".

It also features a new introduction by Deborah Frances-White, stand-up comedian, writer and host of The Guilty Feminist podcast.

In 2013, Fleabag made its debut as a one-woman show in sixty-seater venue the Big Belly, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe's Underbelly. It was an immediate hit, going on to enjoy two runs at London's Soho Theatre, national and international tours, whilst picking up prizes including Critics' Circle, The Stage, Fringe First and two Off West End Theatre Awards, plus an Olivier Award nomination.

The 2016 TV adaptation propelled Fleabag and Phoebe to worldwide fame, earning critical acclaim and further accolades including Writers' Guild, Royal Television Society and BAFTA Television Awards. A second series, nominated for eleven Emmys, followed in 2019, along with a sold-out run of the original play in New York.

The new book is published alongside Fleabag's first West End run, at Wyndham's Theatre, London.
