Bunny Productions in association with House Theatre

Still No Idea

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Wed 16 Oct, 20:00

Advisory age: 14+



written by Lisa Hammond, Lee Simpson and Rachael Spence
originally co-produced by Improbable and The Royal Court Theatre

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.

‘Hilarious, clever and vital viewing’ ★★★★ The Stage

‘Essential viewing… Hammond and Spence are sincere [and] incessantly funny’ ★★★★ WhatsOnStage

‘Wonderful to watch… hilariously rude and naughty’ The Daily Telegraph

‘Pin sharp, provocative and hugely entertaining’ The Times

80 minutes, no interval
Age recommendation: 14+

This performance is supported on tour by house, delivered by Farnham Maltings and funded by Arts Council England.
