Ronit Rubinstein

Originally from Montreal, playwright Ronit Rubinstein now resides in Toronto, where her play Sitting In a Tree debuted in the Fringe festival. In 2016, her short play Anniversary was produced by the New Theatre of Ottawa and by Vancouver’s Tomo Suru Players, and her one-act Advice for Women was performed by Chicago’s Fury Theatre. An excerpt of her full-length play Vagilantes: A Grand Guignol, Sort Of was also read that year at Winnipeg's Femfest theatre festival. Her strange little script Swagger Jacking at the End of the World won second place in the 2015 Toronto Fringe 24-Hour Playwriting Contest. Ronit is a co-editor of and contributor to the anthology City Voices: A Book of Monologues by Toronto Artists. She's currently developing Bad. Bible. Bitches., a play about female representation in the Bible. When not writing, she tells her most embarrassing stories at local storytelling events, and plays covers of 90s RnB songs on the ukulele. Ronit studied English and Theater at Princeton University.
