'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.

​On March 24th 1980, San Salvador, El Salvador, during Mass at the chapel of the Hospital of Divine Providence 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, the year that would have been Oscar Romero’s 100th birthday, we continue to draw much inspiration from his example. 

The true story of 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.

Love is a heartbeat...
