“Do you know what it is like to be treated like you’re not human? I do.” With that statement, Rohina Malik got to the heart of the message in her play, “Unveiled.” The one-woman play was written by Malik and performed by her on Nov. 28 in Northeastern Illinois University’s (NEIU) Auditorium Theatre.
A full contingent of theatergoers were in attendance and it was a diverse crowd of people. The venue itself was not the most ideal, however. The sound was a bit muddied, and the hall had a high-school cafeteria-like feel, with tiled floor and concrete walls. NEIU has much better venues for plays on its campus, and I was struck by the question of why they were not used in this instance.
