The Revlon Girl by Neil Anthony Docking – Open Auditions
Mon 29th Jul 2019 to Tue 6th Aug 2019
Auditions for The Revlon Girl, by Neil Anthony Docking
29th July and 6th August, 7.30 pm in the theatre lounge.
Playing dates are 12th to 16th November
The play is set eight months after the Aberfan disaster of 1966, when a coal tip slid down into the village, covering the primary school, and killing 144 people, most of them children. The Revlon Girl tells the true story of a group of the bereaved mothers who meet each week, for mutual support, when they can cry and even laugh without feeling guilty. At one of their meetings, the women looked at each other and admitted how much they felt they’d ‘let themselves go’. They decide to ask a Revlon representative to come and give them some advice on beauty tips. They keep this secret, as they fear people might think them frivolous.
The Revlon Girl could be any age between 20 to 35.
Sian, Marilyn, Rona and Jean, who should all really be Welsh, and are ideally in their late twenties to late forties.
But I don’t want to deter anyone from reading because they think they are too old, as the right person is more important than the right age!
Jan Wilson, Director
