A group of young men from Parade Gardens embark on a journey of transformation using parkour and Joseph Campbell’s ‘The Hero’s Journey’. In a programme hosted by the British Council, the National Theatre of Scotland and Manifesto Jamaica, they create a piece of theatre that impacted the young men and their community through their struggles over three years of engagement and development.
