Norwich play tells story of champion Oscar Romero
Rise Theatre returns to St John’s Cathedral Norwich for a performance of Romero – Heartbeat of El Salvador – which tells the true story of the human right champion.
The production is based on the life of Blessed Oscar Romero and his heart for the oppressed people of El Salvador. Romero chose to challenge those in power and stand up for social justice. He demanded respect for human rights.
Romero – Heartbeat of El Salvador will be performed on Saturday September 30, with doors opening at 7pm (show starts at 7.30pm). The performance is 75 minutes long and the recommended age is 11+.
Organisers say: “Romero chose to challenge those in power and stand up for social justice. He demanded respect for human rights. We continue to draw from his example – particularly when considering and responding to injustice and oppression taking place in our world today.”
Rise Theatre is a professional Christian theatre company with a passion for delivering exciting, original and transformative theatre and recently performed White Rabbit at St John’s.
The play is accompanied by an original sound track from James Joshua Otto and an inspiring graffiti set designed by Gage Graphics.
The production is in association with The Archbishop Romero Trust.
Tickets at £12 per adult and £10 concessions are available at the cathedral shop and online.
Discounts and cheaper group rates are available until September 4
