The Revlon Girl

By Neil Anthony Docking

Directed by Maxine Evans

Set 8 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, afraid that people would think them frivolous, they secretly arranged for a representative from Revlon to come and give them a talk on beauty tips.

The action takes place on a rainy Tuesday night in a room above the Aberfan Hotel.
"I shall never forget the play... stupendous performances from the five actors, whose highly individual characters refract universal suffering and resilience" The Observer
"A brilliant piece of theatre... And the performances are superb" ★★★★ The Wee Review
"A funny, feisty, heart-wrenching story of how lipstick can look like hope" ★★★★ The Wee Review
The Revlon Girl must surely rank as one of the best pieces of new writing in London at the moment” There Ought To Be Clowns
“Unmissable” Kat Leslie ★★★★★ Get the Chance

"A huge undertaking... skilful and coupled with expert delivery, it encapsulates the poignancy and loss of those mothers who said goodbye to their children one morning and never saw them again." Wales Arts Review
