Cotton Fingers

Cotton Fingers

Samuel Beckett Theatre, Wednesday 29th May - Friday 31st May 2019

National Theatre Wales presents, Cotton Fingers, a timely, politically-charged production, written during the referendum to repeal the 8th amendment in Ireland in 2018.

Set in Belfast, Cotton Fingers tells the story of a young woman making the journey to Wales to access free NHS abortion care. Northern Irish actress Amy Molloy will perform in this bold, one-woman show about the cycles of secrecy and the power young women hold over their futures.

Cotton Fingers was originally performed in west Wales, in venues close to the port town of Fishguard, where Irish ferries dock, in July 2018. It was one of five monologues or Love Letters to the National Health Service that formed part of National Theatre Wale's NHS70 Festival, celebrating the Health Service's 70th birthday.
