Following a critically acclaimed and sell-out tour across Wales last year, The Revlon Girl comes to London’s Park Theatre this September.
Written by composer and writer Neil Anthony Docking, The Revlon Girl is a poignant, heart-breaking and tender new play which explores a terrible episode in Welsh history and tells a story of amazing courage, hope and humour.
Set eight months following the death of 116 children during the Aberfan Disaster of 1966, The Revlon Girl tells the real life story of a group of bereaved mothers who met every week above a local hotel to talk, cry and even laugh without feeling guilty.
At one of their meetings, the women confided how much they felt they’d forgotten about themselves but were too afraid of being judged frivolous to do anything about it.
So together they arranged – secretly – for a representative from Revlon to come along one night and give them all a talk on beauty tips.
The Revlon Girl, currently moving and inspiring audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe until August 28, is directed by Maxine Evans and stars Charlotte Gray, Antonia Kinlay, Michelle McTernan, Bethan Thomas and Zoë Harrison.
The Revlon Girl runs in the Park90 from September 19-October 14.
