Olu Jacob and Joke Silva’s ‘Heartbeat’ Musical Hits the Stage
Heartbeat is anchored on Grace House, a well-known shelter for the homeless. Grace House finds itself in the middle of a battle between warring forces within their local government area while preparing for their 25th year anniversary. Caught between personal and political conflicts, the residents (each with their own share of secrets, fears and flaws) must come together to save the only place they can truly call their own
Heartbeat explores the themes of: love, hate, betrayal, family, identity, politics, homelessness and social justice through the characters who converge in and around Grace House in search of refuge and atonement. Heartbeat is about Lagos, the Heartbeat of Nigeria. It’s about relationships, the Heartbeat of love, and it’s about hope, the Heartbeat of life.
Heartbeat: The new beginning is directed by Najite Dede .Written by Tosin Otudeko and Debo Oluwatunminu, Music Produced by Efosa Lawal and Songs by Tosin Otudeko
