‘The Revlon Girl must surely rank as one of the best pieces of new writing in London at the moment’.
Ian Foster, There Ought To Be Clowns
‘Anyone who questions the ability of theatre to shine a light on the human condition should be afforded the privilege of sitting through a performance of this seminal work’.
Geraint Thomas, South Wales Evening Post
'The Revlon Girl' is an original play based on the events surrounding the Aberfan Disaster of 1966. Written by Neil Anthony Docking (‘Casualty’, ‘Emmerdale’), directed by Maxine Evans (‘Stella’, ‘Call The Midwife’) and set 8 months after the tragedy, the play draws on the real life story of a small group of bereaved mothers who met every Tuesday above a local hotel to talk, cry and even laugh (without feeling guilty). At one of their meetings, the women looked at eachother and realised how much they had let themselves go. Afraid that people would think them frivolous, they secretly arranged for a representative from Revlon to come and give a talk on beauty tips. The action takes place on a rainy Tuesday night in a room above the Aberfan Hotel.
