Ralph, Archie and George have been golf buddies for donkeys’ years and now they’re retired and spending more time than ever on the course and in the 19th hole.

Their long-suffering “golf widows” have had enough. The girls want to enjoy their golden years and put some spice back into their lives. With “one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel”, George has to accept he is no longer the Sean Connery of the Happy Valley Golf Club. His golf-widow, wife Flo enjoys nothing better than going to bed with a good book, while George is banished to another room because he snores.

Archie may struggle to keep up with the pace wife Pam sets in the boudoir, but at least he and George acknowledge the “happy wife, happy life” principle.

Bombastic Ralph, on the other hand, has yet to learn that lesson. When wife Mabel wants to join the other gals for a salsa class, Ralph puts his foot down – and Mabel leaves.

Golf then is really just a vehicle for this chip shot out of the old rocky relationship bunker. Can these old timers get their marriages out of the bunker? Who will win the battle of the sexes? Will the game drive a wedge between them? Is there sex after sixty five? This play is for both lovers and haters of the gentleman’s game.

A review of The Revlon Girl by Jaden McLeod

The Revlon Girl by Neil Anthony Docking The lights dim in the theatre. An ominous rolling sound can be heard approaching as rain patters outside. The set is excellent – a sparse room, soon to be filled with the pain, grief, hope and laughter of five women. The Revlon...
