The Revlon Girl

Sunday 17 September 2017

Off-West End - Shows

At the Park Theatre from 19 September, The Revlon Girl is set 8 months after the Aberfan Disaster of 1966 and tells the real life story of a group of bereaved mothers who met every week to talk, cry and laugh without feeling guilty.

On October 21 1966, 116 children and 28 adults lost their lives when a colliery spoil tip collapsed and the debris quickly covered a section of the Welsh village of Aberfan.

More than 1.4 million cubic feet of debris poured over the village including classrooms at Park Theatre which were immediately inundated.

The Revlon Girl - which will be at the Park Theatre from 19 September to 14 October 2017 in the Park 90 auditorum - is set 8 months following the dreadful disaster and 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.

And here's some amazing audience reaction from this year's Edinburgh Festival which may just have you scurrying to get tickets to this show (ticket link to the Park Theatre's booking system is below) ...
