[ FREE PDF ] ⚓ Fleabag: The Original Play ♧ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

The monologue that started it all Almost exhaustingly funny and refreshingly debauched It cannot be denied that the television adaptation of Fleabag has helped define an era, so it s interesting to see how it began The monologue is essentially the first series of the show, but incredibly pared down to roughly an hour of dialogue Fleabag s approach to life is chaotic but also wincingly relatable Waller Bridge really read us all for filth. Heartbreakingly relatable, hilarious and the perfect thing to pick up after seeing the show I love the concept of Fleabag letting the audience peek into her world as she speaks to them throughout different scenarios in her life until she realizes they re seeing too much into the ugliness of both her personality and current situation There s something endearing about seeing woman s trials and

thereal in this dark comedy that one can t help but enjoy The play ended too abruptly, for me, but again, you can simply see the phenomenal show to see what else happens in Fleabag s life If you re not aware of Phoebe Waller Bridge, you should check her out In the past few years Waller Bridge has become a phenomenon, not only taking her award winning Edinburgh Fringe Festival show to the London stage and then to the BBC for two wildly successful seasons, but she s also been employed as a writer for major tv productions, most recently the 25th James Bond film I m currently binge watching

writer for major tv productions, most recently the 25th James Bond film I m currently binge watching Season 1 of Fleabag and can t wait to get on to Season 2.Who is Fleabag for For one, it s a certificate 15 in the UK 18 in France , so you re not going to be able to watch it with the little ones Fleabag includes lots of adult themes, such as female masturbation, but interestingly very little nudity, if at all The main character, also played by Phoebe Waller Bridge, is a thirty something living in London attractive, vulnerable, obsessed about sex in general and casual sexual encounters in particular, close to her anorexic sister but how can one be close to a person who organises their own surprise birthday party and describes it as a business meeting , and coming to terms with a close friend s suicide.But if you haven t seen or read Fleabag, this won t tell you very much because Fleabag flies in the face of viewers readers expectations Phoebe is sexually liberated but not in the 60s or 70s sense of liberation what we associate with sexual liberation typical of those years She s actively on the look out for sexual encounters, yet she does not particularly enjoy sex she much prefers masturbation , and her male partners are immature, socially inept fellas, who don t give a damn about her gratification In addition, Phoebe has this knack of turning to the camera and making the viewer privy to her thoughts about these men or indeed herself a technique revived by Miranda Hart in her own sitcom about 10 years ago, but used farextensively by Waller Bridge Fleabag is herself an emotionally immature, gaffe prone, often selfish young woman who steals a statuette from her stepmother just because she can , and sends selfies of her intimate parts to boyfrieds hasn t she heard of revenge porn for f s sake She s also brutally honest, insecure, and totally relatable I dropped one star because I thought that some of the jokes were a bit cheesy, but overall Fleabag is fresh, relentless and innovative, esp with regard to womens sexuality I m looking forward to watchingepisodes I wasn t able to catch the play at a theatre obviously because I live in faraway lands There were no screenings near me either but I managed to find a copy somewhere and fortunately a bookshop near me sold the play in print Other than visiting another country for vacation last May I

bookshop near me sold the play in print Other than visiting another country for vacation last May I think watching Fleabag is the only other good decision I made this year And this year has been rough I saw the series twice but the play itself is still an experience Whilst it only covers the first season, with parts rearranged and altered to fit the theatrical structure in minimalist fashion, it also hits very hard It made me laugh and cry that afterwards I knew I just have to read it again It would be an understatement to say Phoebe Waller Bridge is brilliant both as a writer and an artist We all know that She created perhaps one of the most complex and resonating female characters out there We all know that too What makes Fleabag unforgettably exceptional and wonderfully painful is how it does not brush off female angst, which it vividly captures, as mere mood swings nor as a millennial, post hysteria syndrome Indeed it is a persistent condition that ails women accompanied by delightful period jokes brought by Fleabag that stems from a lot of societal norms and expectations smeared with bias and bigotry.With all the passive aggressive exchange, draining stoicism, and emotional restraint, all done in delightful British accents, Fleabag portrays trauma and guilt at its most bare levelled by humour raw enough it stings like tequila without a chaser down your throat and you ll take another shot then another and another But most of all, here is a flawed character that doubts herself, does not really value herself but also has confidence Here is someone who does not allow herself to swing through the crutches of bereavement nor create meaningful relationships with people but also has empathy and kindness And someone who deflects and copes, shuts down and walls up, through momentary pleasures, in this instance the use of sex and masturbation, either without a flick of an emotion or to numb an emotion I masturbate a lot these days especially when I m bored Or angry Or upset Or happy She then is further embraced by a dysfunctional family kept together mostly for show each with their own personal issues And a dead best friend, her only friend, who intermittently shows herself in dreams and memories It is deliciously catastrophic yet surprisingly loving But most of all, there is a desperate plea for validation and attention Fleabag, our protagonist, accepts them in any form to alleviate a certain kind of loneliness And I think for most of us who also feel like this, do it like this, we end up trying to get that from the wrong people We think we only deserve that when we deserve better.Despite this write up making it sound like a house haunted with miseries, Fleabag is ingenious without preventing itself to have fun At the end of both the play and the first season, hope is glimpsed through admittance and willing one s self to finally feel A theme muchexplored in season two where a particular human connection appears without being searched for, Fleabag The Play, together with the series, will definitely be something I will revisit from time to time as life goes on not only because I see myself out there but it can somehow be a source of comfort as well It makes you want to keep going and makes you less frightened of being vulnerable Sometimes it s all that matters People make mistakes Yes they do That s why they put rubbers on the ends of pencils Is that a joke I don t know I believe there is a Fleabag in all of us And at the end of the day, we all just want to be loved There s nothing wrong with that It s the most logical inclination in fact [ FREE PDF ] ♽ Fleabag: The Original Play ♷ I sit on the loo and think about all the people I can have sex with now I m not obsessed with sex I just can t stop
