How much has representation of disabled people in the media progressed? A humorous new play dares to review.

Still No Idea sees best friends Lisa Hammond and Rachael Spence returning with a new show almost a decade after they created their first piece, No Idea.

Part verbatim theatre, part improvisation and part comedy sketch show, this is set to be a mischievous exposé of good intentions gone bad.

Still No Idea was developed with Improbable and the Royal Court Theatre, and the performance at artsdepot on September 22 is the first date of its UK tour.

Back in the beginning, Lisa Hammond and Rachael Spence had no idea where to start so they went onto the streets and asked the public. What story should they tell? What characters should they play? When they saw Lisa in a wheelchair and Rachael not, what the public said was funny, jaw-dropping and ultimately heart breaking. The responses informed the debut collective play, No Idea.

Still No Idea reflects on the perceived change in opinion. People say things are looking up, and there are more disabled people in the mainstream media. Lisa Hammond landed a big part on EastEnders, and disabled actors are getting regular auditions. But is the representation on British media really accurate?

The new show takes stock, featuring the British public, the professional writers, the TV executives – and shows that sometimes no matter how hard we try, we still have absolutely no idea.

Lisa Hammond (EastEnders, Vera) and Rachael Spence (The Lost Honour of Christopher Jeffries on ITV) are associate artists of pioneering theatre company Improbable.
