A play about the life and times of Melbourne entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein will have a strictly limited season at The Lawler Theatre from 11 to 28 July, 2018. Lip Service is the imagined relationship between Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden in 1950s and 60s New York, where they battled for supremacy of the global beauty market they pioneered.

From humble beginnings as a Polish Jewish immigrant, Rubinstein arrived in Australia in 1902. She began her career in Coleraine, regional Victoria. She established her first beauty salon, the glamorous Salon de Beaute Valaze, in the fashionable Collins Street and then achieved the ultimate business success by being the owner of a multi-million dollar empire based in New York.
