The Cheviot, The Stag & The Black Black Oil: Live Theatre


45 years on, this new production of The Cheviot, The Stag & The Black Black Oil takes the story back to its roots by visiting village halls in the Highlands and Islands, echoing the play’s original 1970s tour.

The play was a phenomenal success for Joe Douglas in 2015, before he became Live Theatre’s artistic director. He returns to direct this universal tale of how the greed of a few blights the lives of the many.

With a generous dose of Scottish rebellion and irreverence, live music and a riotous ceilidh - you’ve got yourself a rollicking great night out!
