Rise Theatre will be performing Romero - Heartbeat of El Salvador, at St Ignatius parish, in Stamford Hill, north-east London next week.

The true story of Blessed Oscar Romero and his heart for the oppressed people of El Salvador is brought vividly to life by the Rise Theatre team in this highly acclaimed production, accompanied by an original soundtrack from James Joshua Otto and an inspiring graffiti set designed by Gage Graphics.

Fr David Stewart SJ from St Ignatius, said: "It is particularly timely, given last week's great news that Blessed Oscar will be canonised later this year, or early next year, with Bl Pope Paul VI. We Jesuits hold hopes too for the beatification of his martyred Jesuit friend and colleague, Fr Rutilio Grande SJ. "

The play will be performed on Tuesday 20th March, 7.15pm; running time about 75 minutes, it's suitable for adults and children above 11. Tickets are £7 or £5 for under-16s and concessions; purchase in advance from Fr David at [email protected] or 074 3259 1117, or the parish office on 8800 2121; or buy on the day.
