A co-production between Mull Theatre and Sonder Circus, Cailleach is a theatrical film that blends circus with the ancient tradition of storytelling and focuses on one of the most inspirational women of Celtic folklore – Cailleach. Filmed on the Isle of Mull and in New Zealand, Cailleach will fuse the beauty of the two landscapes as the backdrop and playground for this story.

Beneath a veil of mystery, the Cailleach lives on. Plunging us deep into the darkness, she reigns over our winters. But Bride, the Goddess of Spring, bides her time, ready to bring new life and light back to us. A seasonal battle. Rooted in our landscapes and scattered through our folklore, the strength, energy, and mythology of these goddesses inspire this acrobatic re-imagining of their legends, with storytelling at its heart.

Breathing new life into some old art forms, Sonder Circus reconnects to the outdoors to bring you face-to-face with these deities. The tales of our ancestors. The land of our generations - past, present and future. The theatre of now.

Cailleach tickets are valid from 7.30pm on the booking date, you can watch any time thereafter until midnight on the 11 September.

An Tobar & Mull Theatre have introduced a new, fairer pricing policy, you can now choose what to pay on a Pay What You Decide basis, this means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!

We have developed this new ticketing system to encourage more people to come and see shows at An Tobar & Mull Theatre, more often.

All money collected will help An Tobar & Mull Theatre pay the artists in the performance you have watched, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
