About the Artist

Born in Karachi and raised in Saudi Arabia, poetry and literature played a major role in Tazeen’s upbringing. She grew up immersed in the writings of Ghalib, Iqbal, Faiz, Shakespeare, Shaw, Wilde and Poe. She eventually found her voice in playwriting.

As an unapologetic bilingual, she writes plays and articles both in English and Urdu. Tazeen’s work is inspired by current affairs, social issues, family dynamics and her experiences of living in the Middle East and America. Her work aims to represent the unrepresented and tell the untold stories in an authentic and meaningful way.

She has been working under the banner of her company Tee Zee Productions. Some of her recent plays in Houston include, “A Rearranged Marriage,” “Blood Test” and “Mohabbat Fatehay Aalam (Love Conquers All).”

Currently she is presenting an online dramedy series which you can watch here.
