Kalungi Ssebandeke was announced as this year’s recipient at the digital awards produced by the National Theatre on 26 November 2020.
Kalungi says, “It feels me with great joy to be the recipient of the Roland Rees Bursary 2020. I have followed the Alfred Fagon Award for many years and was honoured to have my play ‘Assata Taught Me’ nominated for the Audience Award in 2017. Receiving this bursary means the world to me because it’s the much-needed lifeline I needed to move into 2021 as a freelance writer.”
