Future D. Fidel is an African Australian playwright, screenplay writer, and novelist originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo. In 1996, Future was forced to flee as an orphan stowaway to Tanzania. He tried desperately to trace his surviving family; he was finally reunited with his sister six years later. Future spent eight years in Nyarugusu, a Tanzanian refugee camp, before being accepted as a refugee in Australia where he now lives. Future’s theatre journey started as an actor in the production of I am here (Brisbane PowerHouse 2012, Queensland Theatre Company 2013); later, he became a playwright in residence at Laboite Theatre. Future’s debut play Prize Fighter was featured in both the Brisbane and Sydney Festivals. Prize Fighter was nominated for Best New Australian Work and Best Production at the 2016 Helpmann Awards.
