Commemorating the 55th anniversary of the Aberfan Disaster, The Crescent Theatre is proud to present Neil Docking's play The Revlon Girl.
Set 8 months following the death of 116 children during the Aberfan Disaster of 1966, The Revlon Girl is based on 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 Revlon Girl is a remarkably warm, sorrowful and at times funny play about grief, survivors and make-up.
