One’s black. That makes him black. I suppose.” Manchester, 1982. Dave loves Rod Stewart, Julie and his Ford Capri. He’s all set for a new start. Only Julie’s about to have someone else’s baby. Is Dave ready to become a Dad even though he’s not the father? An exploration of family, race, identity and love, SparkPlug is the story of a white man who becomes the adoptive father, mother and best friend of a mixed-race child, David. Inspired by autobiographical events and exploring the playwright’s background as an actor and spoken word artist, SparkPlug is a poetic, energetic one-man show that examines what family means in today’s society.
