"Muslims in our media are rarely portrayed as normal people. In our television shows and movies, they are always the villains, they are never normal. Brecht once said that Art was the Hammer to shape reality. I wrote Yasmina's Necklace to not only challenge negative stereotypes but to be the hammer to smash them." - Rohina Malik
Newly arrived in Chicago from her homeland, Iraqi artist Yasmina has hardened herself against the possibility of finding happiness. But when she meets Sam, a man with his own emotional setbacks, what had seemed unthinkable becomes improbably and tantalizingly real. Chicago-based artists playwright Rohina Malik and director Ann Filmer reunite for the downtown debut of Yasmina’s Necklace, following its critically-acclaimed world premiere at 16th Street Theater last year.
