By James Phillips  
Directed by  Jack Wood

This is a thrilling debut play about Cold-War betrayal and the quest for justice. It was 1953. In McCarthy’s America, Jakob and Esther Rubenstein are betrayed and punished for an act of industrial espionage. Could this be the greatest miscarriage of justice of the twentieth century? It was 1975, New York. Matthew Maddison meets Anna Levi in front of an art gallery photograph of Jakob and Esther sharing one final kiss before they part. Young, radical and falling in love, together they seek justice for the past. Inspired by a true story, “The Rubenstein Kiss” explores the mysterious corridors of history to reveal the anguish of a family and a quest for atonement.
