About the Show
National Theatre Wales
Written by Rachel Trezise
Directed by Julia Thomas
Belfast & Derry-Londonderry, Dublin, & Sherman Theatre, Cardiff
A timely, politically-charged and vividly written show made by an exceptionally talented, all-female creative team.
Aoife is hungry and in need of something to do.
Cillian makes a mean cheese toastie.
As Aoife’s boredom and hunger are satisfied by half an hour in Cillian’s bed, her life changes forever.
As social and political upheaval grips the country she loves, can Aoife regain control over her future?
Written by award-winning writer Rachel Trezise at the time of the historic referendum of the 8th amendment in Ireland, Cotton Fingers takes us on journey from Belfast to Wales.
This bold, coming-of-age story was originally commissioned as part of National Theatre Wales’ NHS70 Festival in July 2018, and performed in Aberaeron, Ceredigion, and Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.
Cast information to be confirmed. Ticket information for the Cardiff performances will be available soon.
