Mull Theatre

Based at Druimfin, Mull Theatre is a producing company committed to the creation and development of high quality theatre with a focus on touring work. 

Our aim is to blaze a trail and motivate, to connect and engage with our audiences and inspire with our productions. With up to five Mull Theatre productions starting life here every year as well as welcoming a further 30 to 40 globally renowned companies we want to encourage engagement with the arts. We hold residencies throughout the year, attracting artists and performers of all backgrounds and disciplines.

Mull Theatre welcomes creative partnerships and provides support and facilities to rehearse and develop projects, to commission and create new work and combine strengths to tour widely.

Mull Theatre is also home to Mull Youth Theatre and Tidal Dance, both very active and important groups within the community, attracting members of all ages and backgrounds. MYT also runs an extensive outreach programme in schools and is a key player in making the arts and theatre accessible to local young people with the success of the three-year run of Show On The Road, which took theatre skills to primary schools, headed by Mull Youth Theatre Director Andi Stevens inspiring longer term activity.

Most recent work includes our innovative and much loved digital season EMERGENCE which was created specifically to reach audiences at home with exciting new work during the pandemic. EMERGENCE comprised two new commissioned plays directed by our theatre director Beth Morton and filmed by Jamie Wardrop; Strange Rocks by Oliver Emanuel and Undocumented by Anita Vettesse.
