About the Book

The child's down a hole, the mother's up to high doh, the town's up in arms and humanity's down the drain.

Uproarious, occasionally macabre and always compelling, Lally the Scut draws a line in the mud for Northern Ireland.

They say the child was tempted down with toys and slices of teddy-bear ham.

Abbie Spallen's Lally the Scut premiered at the MAC, Belfast, in a Tinderbox production in April 2015.
