Rachael Spence and Lisa Hammond use their position on stage to bring to light their personal experiences.
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.
Part-verbatim theatre, part-confession, part-comedy sketch show with singing and dancing thrown in, Hammond and Spence bring Still No Idea to Purcell Room following a highly successful run at The Royal Court Theatre. Delving into the stories the public imagines for this pair, one disabled and one able bodied, by asking people on the street for their plot ideas, they explore these stories and what they say about society and perceptions of disability
