Baby Reindeer Roundabout Summerhall Edinburgh Fringe 2019

When award-winning comedian Richard Gadd offers a stranger a free cup of tea, he has no sense of the nightmare to come. One act of kindness. Six years of torment.

The sell-out smash hit of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, Baby Reindeer is the “blistering” debut play (The Daily Telegraph) from Richard Gadd (Monkey See Monkey Do, Netflix’s Sex Education). Directed by Olivier Award-winner Jon Brittain (Rotterdam), this is a chilling personal account of compulsion, delusion and obsession. Some admirers simply won’t be shaken off. “A haunted, haunting hour.” (The Guardian).

Baby Reindeer will play a strictly limited London run at the Ambassadors Theatre ahead of a New York transfer to BAM in May 2020.

Richard Gadd said: “Baby Reindeer has been one of the most challenging, yet rewarding experiences of my life. With an incredible team behind me, I have pushed myself to ridiculous limits in a show I find incredibly hard to say and do. The show is about the past six years of my life. An incredibly complicated, messy, confusing, and ultimately challenging period of time at the hands of a serial stalker hell-bent on ruining my life. It is a period of my life that I still look back on to this day with much unease. How did it get as bad as it did? How was it allowed to go on for so long? Why was there no help for me? I feel a moral duty to let people know the terrifying reality of going through something like this. I am absolutely delighted to be in the West End at such a prestigious venue like the Ambassadors. It is all a dream come true.”

Baby Reindeer won the Fringe First 2019, 2019 Stage Edinburgh Award, Off West end award for performance and video design, a Sit Up Award, and a Mental Health Edinburgh Award.


Baby Reindeer runs at Ambassador’s Theatre for a strictly limited season from 2 April – 2 May 2020. This season has been postponed as a result of the COVID-19 theatre closures. The producers are looking to present the show later this year. Existing ticket purchases will be dealt with by your ticket seller. As the number of people to be contacted across the entirety of the West End is a considerable task so please be patient, vendors are working as quickly as possible.
