Expertly written by Neil Anthony Docking, The Revlon Girl tells a very human story of a group of grieving mothers who came together as a support network for each other after the mining disaster in the Welsh mining village of Aberfan.

The disaster happened in 1966, when an estimated150,000 tonnes of colliery waste slipped suddenly and unexpectedly from the mountain above. The waste took out a farmhouse, two rows of houses, eventually making its way to the local primary school killing a total of 144 people: 116 of them children.

This is a powerful and poignant play, based on real-life stories with extreme highs, as well as extreme lows which will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions as we meet bereaved mothers Sian, Marilyn, Rona, and Jean at one of their weekly meetings offering them respite from the reality they face in the outside world.

At this meeting, some eight months after the tragedy, they have secretly arranged for a Revlon girl to come and give them beauty tips to make them feel better about themselves, despite feeling guilty for doing so.
