  • Show Information

The Beat of our Hearts by Natalie McGrath premiered at Exeter Northcott Theatre on 3 February 2022.

A tender and poignant exploration of loneliness and belonging, The Beat of Our Hearts is a unique theatrical celebration of unheard voices and previously untold stories of LGBTQIA+ people, from South West-based playwright Natalie McGrath.

What audiences had to say:

“Wonderfully emotional, inspiring and empowering play getting to the heart of LGBTQ+ lives.”

“Fantastic to see local new writing about LGBTQ experience produced on a big stage in the South West!”

“Lyrical story-telling about LGBTQIA+ experience. Stories are there through history but hidden. Still erased. Still attacked. Much needed”

Developed in partnership with the University of Exeter Wellcome Centre and the Intercom Trust, and produced by Exeter Northcott Theatre, with support from the UK Research and Innovation’s Arts and Humanities Research Council and Arts Council England.

All tickets are valid until 25 March, 10am. You’ll need to book a free ticket and be logged into your account to gain access to the viewing page.


The Beat of Our Hearts by Natalie McGrath has now been published and is available to buy from publisher, Salamander Street.
