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.

‘Hypocrisy-smashing new show about disability that’s hilarious, clever and depressingly vital viewing’
‘A lucid, delightfully ironic and politically piercing 80 minutes’
‘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
‘Gliding from irreverence to hilarity to bleakness and back again.. genuinely innovative’

‘This is a deceptively simple, touching and moving show that will challenge everyone who is lucky enough to see it.’
‘This self-penned two hander may be the funniest and fiercest of them all to date’
‘Deft insight, charm and beautiful storytelling. Their relationship is steadfast and relaxed, with a strong and secure comic rhythm that delivers their infectious humour.’
