The second, and final, series of Fleabag has been one of the biggest TV hits of the year. If you're still mourning the end of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's dark comedy masterpiece, though, there's respite in sight: you will be able to get your fill in Dubai at the Courtyard Playhouse this November.

Before it was adapted into a hit TV series, Fleabag started life as a one-woman stage show in 2013, written by and starring Waller-Bridge. Earlier this year, the writer and actress brought the show back to London’s West End for 30 performances, following a sold-out run in New York.

If you weren't lucky enough to catch the show live at London's Soho Theatre, a recording of the play is being shown in Dubai next month.

Watch the trailer for the 'Fleabag' stage show here:

Directed by Vicky Jones, the stage show tells the story of Fleabag, an "unfiltered and self-obsessed" thirtysomething, as she tries to navigate love, family relationships and adulthood. The show has been described as a "rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life". The New Yorker described it as a "legitimately hilarious show".

Brought to Dubai by Britain's National Theatre Live, there will be screenings on Friday, November 29 and Saturday, November 30.

The event is exclusively for members of the Courtyard Playhouse; you can buy temporary monthly memberships for Dh100, or an annual membership for Dh700, which gets you access to unlimited Courtyard Playhouse performances for one year.

Friday, November 29 and Saturday, November 30, 8pm-11pm; Dh100 (temporary membership), Dh700 (annual membership); 'Fleabag' at the Courtyard Playhouse, Al Quoz, Dubai; courtyardplayhouse.com
