She was offered at the end of the class to perform a sample of her play in the Fillet of Solo Festival at Live Bait Theater in July 2008.

The next year, “Unveiled” had its world premiere at the The 16th Street Theater, directed by Ann Filmer. Rohina is a resident playwright at Chicago Dramatists, and an artistic associate at the 16th Street Theater and a company member at Voyage Theater Company in NYC.
