Tulipped is a semi-autobiographical play that revolves around a young woman who is trapped in her fantasies and stuck in unfulfilling relationships. Her best friend intervenes and interrupts her life by staging a weekend intervention; hoping to knock some sense into her friend. The end result is an emotionally driven journey where the issues of choice vs. fate, nature vs. nurture, and forgiveness are discussed between the characters. The essay that follows offers a more in-depth discussion of the roots of maturation and healthy decision making skills and pays particular attention to the needs of children as they grow up. Connection to one’s past and the role of hindsight and reflection are also highlighted in great detail with regard to how they aid in integrating the pieces of oneself and assist in one’s ability to see the present world clearly in order to navigate the future successfully.
