The sponsors of the event provided the following information:
On Saturday, September 15, 2018, Unveiled, a play written and acted by Rohina
Malik, will be performed at 2:00 pm at the First Parish of Watertown, 35 Church
The play depicts five Muslim women in a post-9/11 world who serve tea and uncover what lies beneath the veil. Malik says she was inspired to write the play
because of the current climate of hate towards Muslims.
Recognizing that Islamophobia is based on ignorance and ignorant assumptions, she performs a series of monologues delivered by five very different Muslim women. Her westernized characters range from a Moroccan-American lawyer to a West London rapper of South Asian origin, who all share their diverse experiences with intolerance. Although the 70 minute play touches on racism and hate crimes, it is also a tribute to love, Islam, and life.
The performance is free and open to the public. Tickets are available at www.unveiled-watertown.eventbrite.com or at the door. The performance is sponsored by World in Watertown, Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice & the Environment and Survival Education, Inc.
