The Tulip Tree

Wed 29th Feb – Sat 3rd Mar 2012


““My type of folly is unique. Only the best minds can aspire to it.””





Oxford University Dramatic Society


Enoch Powell is one of the most notorious British politicians to ever exist. A man of deep convictions, intense fervour and terrifying intellect, in his early life his ambition made him capable of anything he put his mind to – until he fell in love.

In this brilliant piece of new writing by Oliver Michell, intensity and helplessness combine as a proud man crumbles under the weight of his own intellect. The Tulip Tree tells a true story in the life of an extraordinary and passionate man: this powerful and provocative New Writing Festival production is not to be missed.

The OUDS New Writing Festival showcases the best of student writing in Oxford. From 28 script submissions, Telegraph theatre critic Dominic Cavendish has selected the top four to be performed at the festival. Student directors and actors will take these brand new plays on their exhilarating first journey from page to stage.

Admission: £6(£5)
