SparkPlug Theatre & Performing Arts


This lyrical and energetic monologue from Manchester-based dual heritage writer David Judge examines what family means today.

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. This lyrical and energetic monologue from Manchester-based dual heritage writer David Judge examines what family means today.

Inspired by autobiographical events and exploring the playwright’s background as an actor and spoken word artist, SparkPlug is unflinching in its portrayal of real situations as it explores racism, violence and masculinity – some of the most pressing issues currently being discussed. Offering a non-judgmental space in which to start a conversation, SparkPlug seeks to give people the chance to talk openly about these themes.
