Still No Idea

Lisa and Rachael want to make a show, but there's a problem: they don’t have any ideas.

So who do they turn to? The Great British public, of course!

They make a pact. They'll go onto the streets, interview people, and whatever story the public come up with – that will be the show. No backing out, no changing what they don’t like. Deal.

Still No Idea is Lisa and Rachael's quest: a mischievous look at two friends searching for drama, action, and a story to tell.

It’s part verbatim theatre, part confession, part comedy sketch show with a bit of singing and dancing thrown in.

Turns out getting the public to write your story is quite an adventure.

Presented by Bunny and written by Lisa Hammond, Lee Simpson and Rachael Spence in Association with Traverse Theatre. Originally co-produced by Improbable and The Royal Court Theatre.

‘A lucid, delightfully ironic and politically piercing 80 minutes’
★★★★ The Guardian
‘Hammond and Spence are not going to leave any lazy attitude towards disability un-skewered in this eye opening 80 mins, and all credit to them.’
★★★★ Evening Standard
‘Deft insight, charm, and beautiful storytelling’
‘Hypocrisy-smashing new show about disability that’s hilarious, clever and depressingly vital viewing’
★★★★ The Stage
‘Hammond and Spence are sincere, incessantly funny and have the rapport perfectly suited to leaping from humour to pathos in a matter of minutes.’
★★★★ What’s On Stage
