Who attacked Dad?
When corrupt, brutal dentist Albert Ludd is found battered and bloody after failing to attend a memorial party for his son, a soldier killed in Afghanistan, suspicion falls on his other children – especially 37-year-old buxom bruiser Monica, who was heard “uttering threats” against her absent father. How come her car was found outside his house? Why did she buy a large axe? Yet Monica’s a senior teacher...
Blood is a Gothic black comedy seen through the eyes of six-foot Monica, who speaks her secret thoughts aloud and who has been banned from social media by the principal of her school: “Governors queried your use of ‘moron’ and ‘twat’.”
Set in anarchic modern times where terrorism has become routine, Blood also asks serious questions about contemporary life: what can we do with the monstrous men who bully women and the weak? Can we wait for a world of order and justice? If we hit back, can the circle of violence ever be broken?
