“Welcome to the world of Revlon: where every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful.”
In the months following the heart-breaking 1966 Aberfan disaster in which 116 children and 28 adults tragically lost their lives, a group of bereaved mothers meet every week to talk, cry and even laugh together in attempt to rebuild their shattered lives. When one of them admits to feeling they’ve let themselves go and wanting to feel human again, they arrange for a Revlon rep to give them a talk. Afraid that people will think them frivolous they decide to hold the session in secret. Based on a true story, this is an unforgettable new play full of compassion, sorrow and laughter.
