'Fall in love in my early 20s, get married in my late 20s, have at least one child by the time I'm 30. Fuck!'


Life is hard to navigate when you've got so many questions. Can I put this jumper in the washing machine? Do you have my birth certificate? Where did you find love? How did you do it? How do you survive?


A story of a kamikaze love affair with unexpected consequences. Hilarious and heartbreaking, weaving spoken text with a live original score. Sparks is a two-hander musical about the brain's response to grief.
