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. 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.
“A lucid, delightfully ironic and politically piercing 80 minutes”
— The Guardian
“Hammond and Spence are sincere, incessantly funny and have the rapport perfectly suited to leaping from humour to pathos in a matter of minutes. Essential viewing”
— What’s On Stage
Running time – 80 minutes (no interval)
Age guidance – 14+
Each performance of Still No Idea will be performed in a relaxed environment, aiming to create a space for everyone, especially people who would benefit from a more informal experience. Some of the things that will be in place include:
• A relaxed attitude to noise in the auditorium; you are welcome to respond to the show in whatever way feels natural
• You can enter and exit the auditorium when needed
• You will be helped in finding the best seats
A Sensory Synopsis and a Story Synopsis has been produced for anyone that may benefit from them.
