Canadian producer Marla Rubin began her career working in documentaries.  Her multi-award winning theatre productions honour documentary film’s tradition of speaking truth to power – celebrating the inspirational human stories behind society’s underdogs, misfits and outsiders.

After being bewitched by the cult Swedish film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, Rubin obtained the rights to adapt the movie for the stage & approached the National Theatre of Scotland to co-produce it with her.  Following its launch at the Dundee Repertory Theatre in 2013, the show transferred to the Royal Court and then on to the Apollo Theatre in the West End.  The production won Melvyn Bragg’s 2014 South Bank Award for Best New Play in the UK.   Prior to that, Rubin produced THE MOUNTAINTOP (Olivier Award, Best New Play, 2010), which transferred to Broadway in 2012.  As her very first theatrical venture, Rubin launched the multi-award winning FESTEN at the Almeida Theatre (London Evening Standard Award: Best Director and Best Design; Critic’s Circle Award: Best Director; WhatsOnStage Award: Best New Play; Sydney Theatre Award: Best Direction, Best Set Design, Best Costume Design: and 5 Olivier Award nominations including Best New Play, 2005), before transferring it to Broadway in 2006 and producing it around the world.  Rubin is currently developing a new project for the stage on maverick designers and filmmakers Charles & Ray Eames.
