Biography

Born in Uganda, Charles Mulekwa is an award-winning playwright, performer, composer, and producer. He began writing plays in his native Uganda and his interests center on the ways in which war within Uganda has informed Ugandan theatre. In 1998, the British Council and the Peggy Ramsay Foundation granted him a joint scholarship for an MA in Playwriting at Birmingham University, where he wrote the play A Time of Fire. His other plays include The Woman in Me and The Eleventh Commandment. Mulekwa was in the National Theatre of Uganda for many years, and served as a cultural consultant for the award-winning film The Last King of Scotland.
