What with substantially raising the bar on her comedy-drama Fleabag the second season of which had both viewers and critics reaching for the superlatives section of the thesaurus and making the world fall for recognisable women who happen to be spies in Killing Eve, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has enchanted audiences. This is, however unfortunate, given that Fleabag has just ended for good and British screens are unlikely to get the second series of Killing Eve until it stops airing on BBC America — which commissioned it and therefore has the stranglehold — in June. Fortunately, venerable theatre magazine The Stage has revisited a column series written for them by Waller-Bridge in and — between the success of Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe, its subsequent London transfer and its screen adaptation on BBC Three in Waller-Bridge wrote pithy, entertaining vignettes about theatrical life — as well as inspiring pieces about how to disagree with your director, and loathing unnecessary nudity and the problems that presents for young actors. Reading them is also a fascinating endeavour in seeing what matters to her and how that translates to her work on screen.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has said it was important that her character in Fleabag never appeared naked in the show, but her speech was so candid that it would feel as though she did. The actress, who created the BBC comedy based on her one-woman show at the Edinburgh Fringe, said she had feared nudity earlier in her career.
No, it was really important to me that I never showed anything, but because she is so candid with her language, it feels like I do. Waller-Bridge, who will perform her show for the final time in London later this summer, said she is still trying to emulate certain elements of her creation.
She also addressed her decision not to appear in the hit drama Killing Eve, which she developed for television based on the novella by Luke Jennings. I was completely convinced and had said with a great amount of smug artistic integrity that I would not come back for a second series.
And then I had an idea of how I could play with the form again.
