Phoebe Waller-Bridge's one-woman show Fleabag was the hottest ticket in town last year when the star brought her sell-out show back to London's West End for one last time.

Phoebe's acclaimed live production - directed by Vicky Jones and performed at Wyndham's theatre - is available to stream online now on Soho Theatre's On Demand site.

The Soho Theatre says that every rental of Fleabag, you'e contributing to charities dedicated to supporting those affected by Covid-19 pandemic. The charities include the National Emergency Trust which supports the most vulnerable in society, and the NHS Charities Together supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients.

Acting For Others, who distribute to people struggling across the theatre sector, and the Fleabag Support Fund, will also receive funds.

From April 10, the show will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video in the US and UK. The production will be available for a 48-hour download for £4, with the option to donate larger amounts of money.

Phoebe's play was adapted into the multi award-winning BBC series, which concluded with series 2 last year. Fleabag series 1 - 2 is available to stream on BBC's iPlayer now.

In a statement, writer and actress Phoebe said: "I hope this filmed performance of Fleabag can help raise money while providing a little theatrical entertainment in these isolated times.

"Thank you to all our partners and to the creative team who have waived their royalties from this production to raise money for such vital causes in this unbelievably challenging situation.

"All money raised will support the people throughout our society who are fighting for us on the frontlines and those financially devastated by the crisis, including those in the theatre community. Thank you in advance to those who donate. Now go get into bed with Fleabag! It’s for charity!"
