The Revlon Girl by Neil Anthony Docking
Eight months after the Aberfan 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 their previous meetings, the women looked at each other and admitted how much they felt they’d let themselves go. Afraid that people will think them frivolous, they’ve secretly arranged for a representative from Revlon to come and give them a talk on beauty tips.

Cast Details – in order of appearance on stage
Sian: Late twenties, bright, hopeful and eager to help, Sian is very much the instigator (and defender) of the evening’s event and is desperate for it to go well.
Revlon: Around the same age as Sian, Revlon is smart, well-groomed, well-bred, trusting and clearly does not come from a Welsh working-class mining village.
Marilyn: Early to mid-thirties, Marilyn is introverted, tense and fearful of change. Though outwardly naive, she is very focused
Rona: Early to mid-thirties, Rona is fiery, foul-mouthed and indomitable. She finds strength in rage, rejects authority and is easily set alight.
Jean: Early to mid-thirties, Jean is stately, conservative and sociable. Though she hails from the same background as Marilyn and Rona, Jean is now the wife of a respected church minister and therefore regards herself as a pillar of the community.
