Bio data of Author

 
    Ruwanthie de Chickera  
Ruwanthie de Chickera’s first play, the Middle of Silence, written when she was nineteen, reflects her deep insight into human behaviour. It won the British Council International New Playwriting Award for South Asia in 1997 and was the first Sri Lankan play to be performed in London’s West End (at the Royal Court Theatre) in 1998. Middle of Silence was subsequently performed in Colombo, Bangalore and Mumbai.
