Malik is a critically acclaimed Chicago playwright and solo performance artist. She was born and raised in London of South Asian heritage. She has been nominated twice for the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Play: first for her play THE MECCA TALES, produced by Chicago Dramatists in 2015, and most recently for YASMINA’S NECKLACE, directed by Ann Filmer, which had its world premiere at the 16th Street Theater in January 2016 and was recently remounted at the prestigious Goodman Theater. Malik is a Resident Playwright Emeritus at Chicago Dramatists, an Artistic Associate at the 16th Street Theater, an Artistic Associate at Voyage Theater Company in NYC and an Artistic Affiliate at the American Blues Theater. In March 2018, The League of Professional Theatre Women selected Malik to receive the 2018 Lee Reynolds Award, given annually to a woman whose work for, in, about, or through the medium of theatre has helped to illuminate the possibilities for social, cultural, or political change.
