  • Tickets for the stage finale of Fleabag are gone.

    The West End reprisal of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s hit show Fleabag was announced just hours before tickets went on sale, with the show subsequently selling out within 60 minutes.

    Waller-bridge debuted Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival back in 2013, and she has since become a household name following the finale of its second TV series.

    Her one-woman play will run at Wyndham’s Theatre from 20 August to 14 September, for a total of 30 shows.

    Although many fans are delighted to have secured tickets, the ticket-buying process was a trying time for everyone involved, and, of course, many of us were left empty handed.

    If you’re still feeling a bit sorry for yourself today, then we come bearing the perfect cure: our favourite Twitter reactions to the Fleabag ticket-buying process/inevitable disappointment at the show selling out.

    Nothing perks us up like finding a good gif or meme that accurately reflects our feelings of devastation at a situation that we have no control over – am I right?

    So, without further ado, these are the seven stages of the Fleabag ticket-buying experience, as told by the eloquent users of Twitter:

    1. Sitting down at your laptop the moment tickets come on sale, feeling hopeful and savvy:

    2. Getting onto the online ticket queue and nervously waiting for some sort of sign:

    3. Trying to stay positive whilst riding the emotional rollercoaster that is the online ticket-queuing experience:

    4. Doubting yourself as time goes on:

    5. Being hit with this crushing reality:

    6. Denial:

    7. Acceptance:

    If you’re still reeling from your inability to secure a Fleabag ticket, at least you can now take comfort in the fact that many of us feel the same. We would also like to send out a gentle reminder that because it’s a one-woman show, it will be sexy priest-less. Just saying.
