Tally's Blood

Dalziel today welcomed Ann Marie Di Mambro, the famed Scottish playwright, to speak to National 5 English pupils who were studying her play, “Tally's Blood”, as part of their SQA exam preparations.

After discussing the history of the play, the writer invited pupils to pose questions in order to support their studies of the text’s themes such as family, prejudice and war and opened some excellent analyses of the characters.

The playwright was very impressed with the quality of the questions asked and the depth of knowledge which pupils showed of the twenty-eight year old play.

Staff and pupils alike were very grateful for this invaluable experience and could not thank Ms. DiMambro enough for her visit.
