Baby Reindeer at the Ambassadors Theatre has been postponed, due to theatre closures as a result of the global pandemic. For more information, please read here.

As part of Sonia Friedman’s season at the Ambassadors Theatre, Richard Gadd’s searing one-man play Baby Reindeer has been picked up for a West End run following its run at the Bush Theatre, for which it received an Olivier Award nomination for outstanding achievement in affiliate theatre.

Written, performed and conceived by Gadd, a stand-up comic by trade, the play is autobiographical and tells of how a simple offer of a cup of tea led Gadd down a trail of torment and a stalking nightmare he battled to escape.

Gadd won the Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2016 for his blistering stand-up routine Monkey See Monkey Do, and toured the show around the world including sell-out runs a the Soho theatre. He followed it up with Baby Reindeer – which is his playwriting debut - at the Edinburgh Festival in 2019, and won the Scotsman Fringe First Award for new writing. He has since worked on scripts for Sex Education on Netflix, and Channel 4’s The Last Leg.

The play comes to the West End in a production directed by Jon Brittain, who directed the Olivier Award-winning production of Rotterdam at the Arts Theatre.

Producer Sonia Friedman brings the play to the West End for a short run before she brings another play, The Shark Is Broken, to the same address.
