A History of Barlinnie – Part 1

In 2013, in conjunction with Smithycroft School and Barlinnie Prison, Theatre Nemo began a long-term project to chart the journey of Barlinnie, as a building, as a prison, and as a beast within its surrounding community.

Participants explored the impact Barlinnie has had not only those who spent time there but on the wider community, such as the families of staff.
