Malka is a New York based actor, dramaturge and Shakespeare aficionado (which is putting it politely). Theatre has taken Malka abroad where she has studied and performed in London (RADA, MA Theatre Lab, & LAMDA) and Italy, (La Mama Umbria). Some of her favorite roles include: Paulina (The Winter's Tale), Juliet (Romeo and Juliet), Solange (The Maids), Miranda (The Tempest), Antigone, (Antigone), Vasquez (‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore), and J in R+J. She is the first runner up of the Warwick Shakespeare Writing Competition, (London). when not neck deep in shakespeare malka can be found reading a good book, whilst sipping on a good single malt (peaty please). or attempting to complete the NY times friday crossword. she's still working on that. 

She is also the artistic director of the Rogue and Peasant Players, a New York based Shakespeare company.

"Malka Wallick makes the production. Her J is honest without being obnoxious even when she shows her worst side. Wallick leads the show"

-- Chris Bouknight; On Stage Critic

"The very first speech—the famous, O, For a Muse of Fire, performed with great passion and a flawless command of the language by the company’s artistic director Malka Wallick—admits and apologizes that the resources available to stage the play are inadequate. Wallick implores the audience to make use of its collective imagination." --

"By Ismene’s (Malka Wallick) bewailing moans we know that she has no choice but to turn away from Antigone;

we can sense and feel her heartache with unmistakable clarity." 

-- Artem Yatsunov: Theatre is Easy
