Imagine you can hear a couple fighting.But you can’t see who’s raising their fists.How do you decide who’s in danger - the woman, or the man?“Tulips” is the first full-length drama in 30 years to ask whether men can be victims of domestic abuse - and what the consequences are of asking that question. Inspired by many real-life cases of abuse (including the Caroline Flack and Johnny Depp court cases), this is a professionally recorded full-cast adaptation of the acclaimed 2019 stage play that was toured across the South East of England and shortlisted for the Putney Theatre Company’s “Revolutions” award. Further information - including interviews with the writer and cast regarding the drama's controversial reception, and its journey towards the screen - can be found by following @tulipstheplay on Twitter, and the channel "Tulips: The Play" on YouTube.“All we know is the tip of the iceberg. Remarkable, a refreshing success” (Listomania)“Thought-provoking & necessary” (A Younger Theatre)“Outstanding” (The Spark)
