Award-winning writer and actress Rohina Malik will explore themes of racism, hate crime, love, Islam, culture, language and life when she presents her work, “Unveiled: A One Woman Play,” at Salve Regina on Monday, March 19.
Malik’s performance, free and open to the public, will be presented at 7 p.m. in Bazarsky Lecture Hall, located in the O’Hare Academic Building on Ochre Point Avenue. A Q&A session with Malik will follow her performance.
Malik’s depicts the stories of five Muslim women from different ethnic backgrounds in a post-9/11 world. A constant figure within all five stories is each character making or serving tea, which represents a symbol of hospitality and friendship.
Born and raised in London, Malik moved to Chicago at age 15 with her family and later graduated from DePaul University with a degree in Comparative Religions. Her playwriting career began in 2008 with a class she took on writing a one-person play, where “Unveiled” was born. The next year, “Unveiled” had its world premiere at the 16th Street Theater and Malik was offered a one-year residency at The Goodman Theater, in the inaugural group of The Goodman’s Playwrights Unit.
