Ciara
  • FUSE International

A story exploring the relationships between queerness and religion. Watch the tale of Ciara O'Brian, a Northern Irish Catholic girl, given her mother's journal detailing how to be a good Catholic and life during the Troubles. Fighting with her ancestors and the past, Ciara is led to a self-discovery in the modern day. Her life is soon turned upside down when, Protestant girl, Olivia Devlin stumbles into her life. Despite their history, the two girls start to heal old wounds as they battle to stay in each other's lives. However, in this story happily ever after isn't always what it seems. Two worlds collide, but will it be enough? About the company

Footdown Productions is a female led, queer, neurodivergent, production company.

The team is honoured to be taking their most recent theatre show 'Ciara' on this professional fringe run.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
