About the Play
Set 8 months after the Aberfan Disaster of 1966 in which 144 people were killed (116 of them children; most perishing at their school desks), 'The Revlon Girl' tells the uplifting true story of a group of bereaved mothers who met in the disaster's aftermath to talk, cry and laugh without feeling guilty. At one of their meetings, they looked at one another and realized how much they felt they'd let themselves go. Afraid of being judged, they secretly arranged for a representative from Revlon to come and give them beauty tips.
The action takes place on a rainy Tuesday night, in a room above the Aberfan Hotel
