THE REVLON GIRL
Written by Neil Anthony Docking
Directed by Teri Brown
January 13 through February 5, 2023
Synopsis: Eight months after the Aberfan Mining Disaster of 1966 in which 144 people were killed, (116 of them children), a group of bereaved mothers meet weekly above a local hotel to talk, cry, and even laugh without feeling guilty. At one of these meetings, the women look at each other and admit how much they feel they’ve let themselves go. Afraid that people will think them frivolous, they secretly arrange for a representative from Revlon to come and give them beauty tips. Through these makeovers, the women are afforded a respite from the crush of their grief.
