About the event

Part verbatim theatre, part- confessional, part- comedy sketch show with Lisa Hammond (Eastenders) and Rachel Spencer.

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.

Performed by Bunny Productions’ Lisa Hammond (EastEnders, Vera) and Rachael Spence (The Lost Honour of Christopher Jeffries, Thirteen), Still No Idea was originally produced by Improbable and the Royal Court Theatre, and is now on its second UK tour.

 

★★★★ ‘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

★★★★ ‘Hypocrisy-smashing new show about disability that’s hilarious, clever and depressingly vital viewing’ The Stage


Still No Idea is performed in a relaxed environment, aiming to create a space for everyone who would benefit from a more informal experience.
