PRESTON: Romero - Heartbeat of El Salvador
Romero – Heartbeat of El Salvador is a new play by RISE Theatre in association with The Archbishop Romero Trust, looking at the life and legacy of a man who chose to challenge those in power and stand up for social justice.
Love is a heartbeat... The true story of Blessed Oscar Romero and the people of El Salvador is brought to life with explosive energy and passion from the RISE theatre team, accompanied by an original sound track from James Joshua Otto and inspiring graffiti set design by Gage Graphics.
"Watching this play is a thought-provoking, challenging and moving experience that leaves you wanting to know more about the life and legacy of this great man of justice." Bridget Fenwick, CAFOD (March 2017)
On March 24th 1980, whilst celebrating Mass at the chapel of the Hospital of Divine Providence in San Salvador, Archbishop Oscar Romero was killed by a single bullet from an assassin. A modern day martyr created. A future saint in the making. In 2017, Romero’s Centenary year, we continue to draw inspiration from his example, particularly when considering and responding to the injustice and oppression taking place in our world today.
