About Still No Idea

By Lisa Hammond, Lee Simpson & Rachael Spence

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!

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.

All performances of Still No Idea will be Relaxed - aiming to create a space for everyone, especially people who would benefit from a more informal experience. This means we'll take a relaxed attitude to noise in the auditorium; you are welcome to respond to the show in whatever way feels natural. Latecomers will be admitted, and you can enter and exit the auditorium when needed.

A Sensory Synopsis and a Story Synopsis for anyone that may benefit from them.

Originally co-produced by Improbable and Royal Court Theatre.

Age 14+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Still No Idea are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
