Winner of the 2018 Offie (Off West End) Award for Best New Play and nominated for a 2018 Olivier Award, The Revlon Girl is a story of grief, hope, guilt and make-up in the aftermath of the 1966 Aberfan disaster. In this tragic incident 144 people, including 116 children, were killed when a mountain of coal waste crushed homes and a school in the small Welsh town. While the immediate aftermath was recently portrayed in The Crown S3, this play is set eight months after the disaster and depicts four bereaved mothers who meet with a Revlon makeup artist in the local pub one evening to talk, cry and even laugh without feeling guilty – all while navigating how to cope with heart-breaking loss.
