Cotton Fingers

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 playwright 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, performed in Aberaeron, Ceredigion, and Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.
