Saul Rubinek was born in a refugee camp in Germany, after WWII, where his father ran a Yiddish Repertory Theatre company. Saul started his professional career as a child actor in theatre and radio in Canada. He was a member of the Stratford Shakespearean Festival company in Stratford, Ontario (1969-70) and, later, was a co-founder, actor and director of Theatre Le Hibou, Theatre Passe-Muraille and Toronto Free Theatre (1968-1974). Rubinek started working in the United States as an actor at the Public Theatre in New York (1979), and he divided his time between theatres in both countries for several years. He got his early training in film and television as an actor for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and he continues to work as a producer, writer and actor for Canadian independent features.
