Having only opened in May 2013, The Park Theatre is a relatively new space, however, since it opened it has had 3 West End and 2 National Theatre transfers as well as 10 national tours, so sets a high precedent for the shows that follow. Expertly written by Neil Anthony Docking, THE REVLON GIRL is a powerful and poignant story, with extreme highs as well as extreme lows this play takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions that the title never could have foretold.

Review: RAMONA TELLS JIM, Bush Theatre
By Stuart King Tuesday, September 26 2017, 12:17
Ramona and Jim meet as teenagers in the Scottish Highlands. He's local, she's on a field trip from Englandshire. They are quirky, nerdy, articulate (in that weirdly teenage kinda way) and physically awkward (again, in that weirdly teenage kinda way)! Also, their hormones are clearly running riot, for it soon becomes apparent that they are immensely attracted to each other.

You won't want to miss this extremely classy evening that's intellectually fascinating, very entertaining and showcases the very best of New York and London's theatre talent.
The knotty but engaging play premiered on Broadway last year. It collected a raft of top U.S theatre awards before being remounted with the same director but a British cast for this brief run at the National Theatre, before it transfers to Harold Pinter Theatre in the West End.

Victims and perpetrators of violent crime coming together in search of understanding and forgiveness from one another, sounds like a strange and jarring premise for a piece of theatre, but it works surprisingly well - largely due to the fact that the evening is based entirely on two real events. One involves an unprovoked attack at a train station and another where a random beating leads to a road traffic death.
