Based on a true story, Biro candidly charts one man’s epic journey from the Ugandan insurgency of 1979 to a clandestine military camp in Cuba to a present day jail cell in Texas, poignantly illuminating the plight of Ugandans who have endured in the face of war, AIDS and dashed dreams. A 2004 New York Times Critics’ Pick, this eloquent and unflinching solo piece written and performed by Ugandan American actor and photographer Mwine, “has the ring of unvarnished reality, stained by tears and made bearable by laughter” [The Seattle Times].
