“Do you think cos I’ve been in the jail all I know is how to hurt people?” 

Every year in Scotland 10,000 people return home from prison to an uncertain future. A Giant on the Bridge reveals the intimate human experiences within this prison-homecoming journey, in a compelling narrative-gig which fuses acoustic songwriting, Scottish hip hop & original storytelling. 

Five of Scotland’s foremost musicians explore identity, family, community, systems, restoration, injustice - and the pulsing heartbeat within these hidden stories. 

Devised by musician Jo Mango & award-winning theatre-maker Liam Hurley with research by Phil Crockett Thomas. Developed through the work of the Distant Voices Community on a research project incorporating people from all aspects of the criminal justice system, funded by the ESRC.
