How to Build a Better Tulip
A modern update of the classic Dumas novel The Black Tulip, a comedy about the importance of good breeding. After years abroad, Dr Audrey Braddock thinks she's finally found a home for herself and her special maize plants. Lincolnshire's South Holland University may not be top-class, but at least it gives her a place to work. That is, if she can resist the incessant nagging of her 17th century Dutch ancestor, who insists that she complete his failed attempt to breed the perfect black tulip. And if she can outmaneuver Dr Adrian Vanderpol, a younger rival whose petunia experiments aren't necessarily what they seem. And if she can figure out why her wayward daughter Perci pays so much attention to Adrian's research. But can you really engineer a weapon of mass destruction from a tulip?
