“UNVEILED” tells the stories of five Muslim women living in America in a post 9/11 world. Each woman’s compelling narrative offers a captivating perspective on what many Muslims and non Muslims had to deal with as individuals and as members of their communities. All the women are cleverly portrayed by Rohina herself, who is able to create vastly different contexts and realities for each one of them, all the while building a high level of depth to each character, drawing the audience into their world.

On July 4, 2013, The Washington Post published its review stating, "In Unveiled, Malik’s objective is not just narrow, internally focused self-protection of her own Muslim community. Instead she stresses that threats to the civil liberties of some threaten civil liberties themselves.  The character Inez emphasizes, 'And don’t you think this is just a Muslim problem, or an Arab problem.  This is every American’s problem. We are all Americans, and we have to protect each other. Every American needs to realize: Today it is my rights, tomorrow, it could be yours.'”

Chris Jones from the Chicago Tribune says, "Rohina Malik, the hugely talented writer-actress at the center of the Victory Gardens solo show 'Unveiled,' is a remarkable new theatrical voice in Chicago. In her rich, upbeat and very enjoyable 70-minute collection of five character studies of Muslim women in modern-day America, Malik gives voice to characters from whom we hear far too little in the theater."

Rohina Malik is currently based in Chicago as a resident playwright at Chicago Dramatists, an artistic associate at the 16th Street Theater, and she was one of the four writers in the inaugural group of The Goodman Theater's Playwrights Unit.

“UNVEILED” will be shown at the Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall, Princeton University, 68 Nassau St, Princeton, New Jersey 08542 on September 29th, 2013. The show will start at 2:00 PM and will run until 5:00 PM, which includes a Q&A session with Rohina after the play. General admission tickets are $25.00 per person, with a group pass for four tickets available for $80.00. All Princeton University ID holders will have complementary tickets, which are available at the Richardson Auditorium box office.
