Richard Gadd’s debut play Baby Reindeer

Following the success of his raw exploration of masculinity, Monkey See Monkey Do, Richard Gadd is bringing his unmissable debut play to the Edinburgh Festival before its transfer to the Bush Theatre in London. This award-winning comedian takes a dark turn when a chance encounter and a meaningless interaction with a stranger end up having far-reaching consequences beyond anything he could ever have thought possible. 

He offers her a free cup of tea, he wants her to laugh at his joke, but she doesn’t she takes him literally. This unsettling personal narrative follows the spiralling consequences of a seemingly small mistake. It is an exploration of obsession and delusion and along the way raises questions about victims, the judicial system how one choice can forever change your life.

Fascinating story, excellently told. I felt sad, I laughed, I was scared. Excellent acting. Felt rather distrubed by the end. But enjoyed it.

Alexander Creed2nd November

Great play

Mike Dale1st November

Quite intense, slightly disturbing however no full closure,.....what ever happened to Martha?

Mrs M A Spencer31st October

I felt a mixture of emotions after seeing the play - it was strange to be laughing one minute and horrified the next. I can’t believe that someone could unpick someone’s life to the point of such devastation. Brilliant narration and use of effects. Stunning and sober stuff.

Sarah Sculpher29th October

Something different. I liked the intimacy of the space and how engaged you became. An interesting concept and executed well.

Fantastic production and intense performance.

Alexandra Holding27th October

I enjoyed this performance although it was loud and very disturbing. Well done to Richard Gadd for bringing to light a horrific experience that many people today are caught up in. I was impressed by the studio theatre. A good view from all seats.
