Harrogate Studio Theatre

A new play by David Judge

Finalist for Alfred Fagon Award

Best New Play of the Year 2017

'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 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.
