Rabbi Brant Rosen on Rohina Malik at JRC: Unveiling Our Humanity

Rabbi Brant Rosen of JRC in Evanston posted this on his blog about the interfaith event Sunday night. Thank you JRC for once again welcoming 16th Street to your beautiful synagogue (we were there one year ago with FIRES IN THE MIRROR). This is why we do theater. For dialogue. To be moved to conversation and action. To share our humanity indeed. --Ann Filmer

"Last night JRC was honored to host a performance of the one-woman show Unveiled by Rohina Malik. Breathtaking.

Rohina is a playwright, actress and solo artist of South Asian heritage who was born in London and emigrated to Chicago when she was 15. She is an impressive and important contemporary artist – and her identity as an American Muslim woman clearly plays an important role in her art."
