You are invited to a rehearsed reading of “The Revlon Girl”, by Neil Anthony Docking – in the theatre bar – which will be open! Free admission. You are also welcome to stay on afterwards for a discussion about the play if you would like.
Set 8 months following the death of 116 children during the Aberfan Disaster of 1966, “The Revlon Girl” tells the real life story of a group of bereaved mothers who met every week above the Aberfan 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.
Though based on actual events, “The Revlon Girl” is a work of dramatic fiction. It appeared first at The Edinburgh Fringe and then had a subsequent London run at Park Theatre (Finsbury Park) last year.
The reading begins at 7.30pm.
