Aoife’s hungry and bored.
Cillian makes a mean cheese toastie.
As boredom and hunger are satisfied by half an hour in Cillian’s bed, Aoife’s life changes forever.
As social and political upheaval grips her country, what hope does Aoife have to regain control?
A timely, politically-charged show, 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 a journey from Belfast to Cardiff.
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.
