About the showComedian Richard Gadd shares a compelling account of stalking in Baby Reindeer, opening at the Ambassadors Theatre in April. This highly personal show sees Gadd recount and scrutinise the years-long experience of being stalked by a woman he met by chance.
Taking audiences through the entire ordeal – from a cup of tea to police reports – Baby Reindeer is an incredibly honest but unsettling look at what drives obsession and delusion, and how it affects the victim.
Richard Gadd has previously performed Baby Reindeer at Edinburgh Festival and the Bush Theatre. It marks the second hit for the comedian, whose account of sexual assault, Monkey See Monkey Do, was nominated for numerous awards including Melbourne’s Barry Award and Best Comedy Show at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The show’s creative team includes Olivier Award-winning director Jon Brittain (Rotterdam), designer Cecilia Carey, video designer Ben Bull and sound designer Keegan Curran.
Distilling a deeply personal experience into one captivating hour, Baby Reindeer at the Ambassadors Theatre is an unmissable new play. Catch it in the West End for just four weeks from 2 April 2020.
