Richard Gadd will bring his solo show Baby Reindeer to London's West End before crossing the pond. Performances will begin April 2 at the Ambassadors Theatre (soon to be home to Kunene and the King) before an April 6 opening. The limited engagement is currently scheduled through May 2.

The piece, which premiered at Edinburgh Fringe last year before a run at London's Bush Theatre, follows Gadd (Sex Education on Netflix) as he offers a stranger a cup of tea—and the six years of stalking and torment that follow.

As previously announced, Baby Reindeer will also make its New York premiere this year as part of Brooklyn Academy of Music's lineup, running May 21–June 12.
