selected dates on tour supported by house
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’s Lisa Hammond and Rachael Spence, 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 not going to leave any lazy attitude towards disability un-skewered in this eye opening 80 mins, and all credit to them.’ Evening Standard
★★★★ ‘a lucid, delightfully ironic and politically piercing 80 minutes that combine comedy, honesty and protest to distinctive effect.’ Guardian
★★★★ ‘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. Essential viewing.’ WhatsOnStage
‘Gliding from irreverence to hilarity to bleakness and back again… genuinely innovative show using verbatim, improvisation, comedy gags and musical numbers.’ Disability Arts Online
‘To the recent spate of shows that put their own narrative-building first, we can now add ‘Still No Idea’, with the addendum that this self-penned two hander may be the funniest and fiercest of them all to date.’ Arts Desk
