On November 10, 2016, the Muson Centre will play host to Heartbeat the musical, a performance 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. Written by Tosin Otudeko and Debo Oluwatuminu and directed by Najite Dede, the musical explores themes of love, hate, betrayal, family, identity, politics, homelessness and social justice through characters who converge in and around Grace House in search of refuge and atonement.
