Set against the glamorous skylines of 1950s Manhattan, world-leading cosmetics entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein is locked in a power struggle with rivals Elizabeth Arden and Revlon. From humble beginnings as a Polish-Jewish immigrant, this is the story behind one of the best-known faces in the world of beauty.

But as her professional and family conflicts reach fever pitch, will the ghosts of a turbulent past topple one of the world's richest businesswomen?Madame Rubinstein is a bright new comedy where the nails are painted and the gloves are off.

Yet when the lipstick bleeds and the makeup fades, what is there left to hide behind?Written by esteemed Australian playwright John Misto, this edition of the text was published to coincide with its 2017 run at the Park Theatre, London.
