Fleabag: It’s hard to be a ‘post-human’ woman

Abstract

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the undisputed queen of Fleabag, a small British jewel released on the BBC in 2016 and will have its second season next 2019. In it, Weller puts herself in the shoes of a thirty-something woman who tries to put her live back together after the death of her best friend Boo.
