Synopsis

Tally's Blood by Ann Marie di Mambro

As well as being a highly popular play for National 5 English study, Tally's Blood paints a wonderful picture of life in wartime Scotland, as experienced by the Italian immigrant community. Exploring the themes of racism, love and family loyalties, it does so with humour and warmth through the eyes of an Italian family with close blood ties. When World War Two breaks out, friendships outwith the family are sorely tested by the difficulties of wartime prejudice. - One of the set drama texts for National 5 English - Written by a very successful playwright and television screenplay writer
