‘I did question whether I deserved it. Where did my wrongdoings stop and hers begin?’

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 (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).

‘A haunting, unsettling monologue about the nature of obsession’
Evening Standard ★★★★★
‘…tightens its grip with terrible inexorability’
The Guardian ★★★★★
‘A majestic performance – a reckoning, an exorcism’
The Stage ★★★★★

the lonely creative. by Robyn London

I have spent my life immersed in creativity.  As a guide, passion or perhaps what others may interpret as an unrealistic dream.  It is embedded within my earliest memories. It has nurtured my soul. There is beauty in the moments of creativity that healed parts of me, that I didn’t realise were broken. Memories of…
