New show Still No Idea is at the Birmingham Rep this week.
The new show from Lisa Hammond and Rachael Spence will be in the city until 26th October.
The two actresses and the director, Lee Simpson, have come together a decade on from their last show, No Idea.
Former EastEnders star Lisa said:
“It’s great to be back on the road again making theatre together.
“It always feels like putting on a comfy pair of slippers when Rachael, Lee Simpson and I get back in a room and are together again.”
The aim of their first show was to create a spectacle from conversations with the public on the street. Ten years later the actresses realise that they have Still No Idea.
“Have things changed in the world nine years on? Have things got better for disabled people? Of course, we can’t tell you what we found out as you will have to come see the show for that!
“We explore those questions with humour though – it isn’t all serious. There are songs, an 80s dance montage, a horror story and some good old ‘double act’ banter.”
The Autumn tour of Still No Idea will end the on 17th November in the Royal Court Theatre in London after two months of travelling throughout the United Kingdom. Lisa said:
“We have been very lucky with all of the audiences on our tour.
“They have all been really warm and generous, they laugh and cry so what more could we want, it’s great.”
Ticket to their show in Birmingham cost £10 are available here.
Lisa said they were looking forward to their time in the city:
“We love Birmingham, it’s a great city and we are having a lush time pottering around in the daytime before the show. “
