The returning stage version of Fleabag will be broadcast in cinemas around the world, it has been announced.
Following the success of the TV adaptation, the one-woman show written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge caused a frenzy when tickets for a limited season in London’s West End were put on sale.
Now, those who don’t live in London or missed out on tickets will have a chance to see it, with National Theatre announcing it will be shown in selected cinemas on September 12.
A full list of venues has not yet been released, but Dundee’s Contemporary Arts cinema and the Glasgow Film Theatre will be among those showing Fleabag.

The show originally previewed at the Soho Theatre in 2013, before a run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
It has also played at various venues across the world, including an off-Broadway run in New York.
For those hoping to still get along to the live show, 50 tickets will be available for every West End performance at £15 through an online lottery, and a number of £10 standing tickets will be available at the box office every day.
Waller-Bridge, who is on the writing team for the next James Bond movie and is also behind Killing Eve, won a BAFTA for her performance in the TV version, which aired on BBC Three.
The recent second season received eleven Emmy nominations.
