New play on ‘heartbeat of El Salvador’ Oscar Romero to hit Scotland’s capital

The spotlight is set to shine on a brand new play about the life Oscar Romero, as it prepares to hit Scotland’s capital next month.

Romero – Heartbeat of El Salvador will see RISE Theatre, a professional Christian theatre company, tread the boards as they perform the true story of Blessed Oscar Romero, a fierce advocate for human rights who was assassinated while saying Mass.

The exciting play sees this vibrant theatre group depict the life of the former Archbishop of San Salvador, who help the oppressed in his country, challenged those in powerful positions and was a vocal supporter of social justice.

It will arrive at the Lauriston Jesuit Centre, 28 Lauriston Street in Edinburgh on Friday November 3, at 7.30pm.

The play has received positive reviews from many, with Bridget Fenwick of the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD) saying it is ‘a challenging and moving production about the life and legacy of this great man of justice.’

Tickets are priced at £10, with the performance lasting around 75 minutes and suitable for adults and children over the age of 11.
