He s got two dads, my lad. One s black. That makes him black. I suppose.

Manchester, 1983. Dave loves Rod Stewart, Joanne and his Ford Capri. He s all set for a new start. Only Joanne s about to have someone else s baby. Is Dave ready to become a dad even though he s not the father?

A punchy and poetic 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 lyrical and energetic monologue that examines what family means in today s society.
