"Take a good look at us. What sort of story would we be in?”
Lisa and Rachael didn’t know what their show should be about so they asked the public for some ideas. Seeing Lisa, who’s 4 foot tall and in a wheelchair, and Rachael, who’s not, people’s responses were funny, surprising and very revealing.
But that was a few years ago and the world has changed, right? Lisa's on TV, her disabled actor mates are getting work and people are way more open-minded now. Job done.
Still No Idea is a mischievous look at where we were then and where we are now. Part-verbatim theatre, part-confessional, part-comedy sketch show with a bit of singing and dancing - these are the adventures of two friends in search of a story.
