Unveiled offers a provocative, insightful and uplifting theater experience. --Tom Witom, Pioneer Press
“A compelling 70-minute piece rich with illuminating surprises, drawing the audience into worlds that are both unique and truly universal. Terrifically entertaining.”-- Catey Sullivan, Chicago Examiner
This powerful solo show, written and performed by Chicago playwright Rohina, tells five riveting tales of Muslim women. --Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader
“I have now seen one of the attractions that might be bringing people to a community only 6 miles from the Loop, the 16th Street Theater where they are hosting a marvelous premiere production of Rohina's Unveiled. Tickets are a mere $16, a great value for an experience this rich and rewarding as well as educational.” -- Alan Bresloff, Steadstyle Chicago

PHOTOGRAPHY by SADAF SYED
We are honored to present the work of Sadaf Syed in the theater's lobby in the Berwyn Cultural Center. Come early to take in the striking images of Muslim women wearing the veil. A photojournalist and a portrait photographer, Sadaf Syed has been on her own journey of self-discovery. Along the way, she found another perspective on the American Muslim women who cover. Taking the same medium that's being used to misrepresent them, she focused her camera lens on women who graciously sacriﬁced their privacy in order to show their fellow Americans the commonalities we all share.
