For other uses, see Circus of Cheerful Slaughter.

Circus of Cheerful Slaughter is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls Online. Valaste cannot find anything in "Circus of Cheerful Slaughter" that tells her what the next of Sheogorath's trials is. She lets the Vestige try to read the book, and they are transported to Circus of Cheerful Slaughter.

Sheogorath wants to put on a play about the Mages Guild and the alliances. He enlists the Vestige to help.
