What is it?
unitytheatre and DaDaFest International 2010 present No Idea, created by Lisa Hammond, Rachael Spence & Lee Simpson. Lisa Hammond (Peter Kay’s Pheonix Nights, Max & Paddy’s Road to Nowhere) and Rachael Spence (Theatre of Blood, National Theatre, London and Improbable, The House of Bernarda Alba, National Theatre, London) wanted to create a show together, but they had no idea what it was going to be about. So rather than sit down in silence with a pen and paper, they launched themselves on to the street, armed only with a tape recorder and approached members of the public to ask them what they thought the story should be. What they heard and recorded was funny, heartfelt, sometimes staggering but always very, very revealing.
No Idea is a conversational, almost autobiographical approach drawn from Lisa and Rachael’s personal stories and current obsessions, which creates a funny, personal and engaging atmosphere on stage.
