It received a Fringe First Award, the Off West End Theatre Awards' Most Promising New Playwright and Outstanding Female Performance, The Stage Award for Best Single Performer, and the Critics' Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright. In 2016, a television adaptation of Fleabag starring the author was broadcast on BBC3/Amazon. It went on to win multiple prizes, including a BAFTA for best actress in a comedy, and became one of the most talked about and written about shows of the year.
