WELSH WRITER RACHEL TREZISE’S COMING OF AGE STORY TAKES ITS AUDIENCE ON A LIFE-CHANGING JOURNEY FROM BELFAST TO WEST WALES

National Theatre Wales’ Cotton Fingers, written by award-winning writer Rachel Trezise at the time of the historic referendum of the 8th amendment in Ireland, will be performed at venues in Belfast, Derry, Dublin, Bray and Cardiff, May-June 2019.

Amy Molloy will perform in this bold, one-woman show about cycles of secrecy and the power young women hold over their futures, directed by Julia Thomas.

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.
Smart and funny, Aoife knows there’s more out there for her. She just doesn’t know what it is yet.

As social and political upheaval grips the country she loves, can Aoife regain control over her future?

Cotton Fingers was originally performed in west Wales in July 2018; one of five monologues or Love Letters to the National Health Service that formed part of NTW’s NHS70 Festival, celebrating the Service’s 70th birthday.

Tickets are now on sale for this timely, politically charged and vividly written show made by an exceptionally talented, all-female creative team.
