Sunday. July, 2001. Hendon, centre of the world. A car salesman, alone in
the showroom, performs an intimate act of love and worship. Pigeon, crashing through the plate-glass window, witnesses everything. This almighty puncture is the beginning of the big end. Worlds collide. Lives swerve and skid. A pile-up of secrets, sex and sabotage. Can the immaculate bodywork remain undented? And who’s ultimately behind the wheel?
Spike is a new and explosive black comedy which opened at the Nuffield Theatre in 2001, starring Richard Briers.
