Baby Reindeer

Bush Theatre

WINNER Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement

in an Affiliated Theatre​

'I looked at her, wanting her to laugh. Wanting her to share in the joke. But she didn’t. She just stared. I knew then, in that moment – that she had taken it literally…'

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 2019's Edinburgh Fringe, Baby Reindeer is the “blistering” debut play (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”(Guardian).
